Teen actress: Stepdad raped me

A Sandakan resident has been sentenced to a total of 203 years imprisonment and ordered to be caned 24 times for raping his daughter 14 times.

A teenage actress has claimed to have been raped by her stepfather for the past 10 years.

Harian Metro, quoting sources, said the 16-year-old girl, who had appeared in several local TV series, had been abused since the man first married her mother.

"At first, the man, who is in his 50s, touched and kissed her inappropriately. When he saw that the girl was too scared to report the matter, he started raping her," said a source, adding that the rape would happen every time she was left alone at home with him.

The most recent incident took place at their home in Selangor on May 1.

The source said the girl confided in her mother when she could no longer take the abuse.

"Her mother took her to lodge a police report against the stepfather, who was arrested on Friday," said the source.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Adnan Abdullah said the accused would be remanded to assist in investigations.
