A teenage girl was allegedly raped by her friend's younger brother at the siblings' home in Kedah, Sinar Harian reported.
The 17-year-old, from a village near Kodiang in Kubang Pasu, had gone to collect ketum leaves with her friend last month. After collecting the leaves, the girl followed her friend to her house for a rest.
While she was drinking water alone in the suspect's bedroom, he came in.
When the girl tried to leave, the 15-year-old boy held her hand, pushed her onto the bed and forced himself on her.
The girl did not fight back for fear of being blamed for the incident, as she was the one who had come to the house.
She was released by the suspect when her friend entered the room. The victim then told her friend what had happened before returning home.
Kubang Pasu OCPD Supt Abd Rahim Abdullah confirmed receiving a report about the alleged rape and said the suspect had been arrested.
"Based on investigations, this is the second incident. The first happened in June, after which the victim told her friend and a teacher."
