MALAYSIA - A distraught teenager, who had been allegedly molested and raped by her stepfather for over six years, has threatened to leave home if her mother continues to have him in their house, reported Harian Metro.
In a note to her mum, the 14-year-old girl wrote: "I fear I will be pregnant as papa (the stepfather) had raped me. You have to choose. If you still want him I will leave to stay with grandpa."
The girl, the eldest of five siblings, locked herself in a room at the house in Mengkebang, near Kuala Krai, Kelantan, and passed the note to her eight-year-old sister at around 8am on Dec 31.
Stunned by what she read, the 30-something mother rushed to the room to query her daughter about the note.
The girl said papa first molested her by inserting his finger in her private parts when she was eight, at around the time he married her single mother.
He started to rape the child when she was 10, always at night when the rest of the family was sleeping and at least once a week.
She said the latest assault was sometime before the school term break in November, at around 2.30am.
Kuala Krai district police chief Supt Ab Rahim Che Ghani said they have detained a 39-year-old suspect for questioning after the girl and her mother lodged a police report on Wednesday.
