Seven people have been detained in connection with a 12-year-old’s rape in central Thailand. Police have accused five adult men and two boys of carrying out the assault in central Thailand’s Suphan Buri province. The alleged perpetrators are mostly neighbours and family members of the victim.

The victim’s sister, who is also her legal guardian, notified police last Tuesday and her suspicions were confirmed during a hospital examination of the young girl which showed she had been sexually assaulted.

The five adult men were arrested on charges of sexually assaulting a person under 13 years old; committing indecency with a person under 15 and threatening to use force.

The five adult men were aged between 21-51-years old, with two of them being in-laws to the victim. The five were arrested on Saturday, while the two juvenile boys will be summoned for questioning in the future.

One of the suspects, a 51-year-old man, reportedly assaulted the victim multiple times. He also threatened to hurt her if she exposed him. The two juveniles allegedly raped the victim more than once.

All of the five adult males denied the allegations.

Pol Col Manote said if found guilty, they could be sentenced up to 20 years. He noted they could be jailed for life if threats and weapons were found to be involved in the crime.
