Crime | PJ arrests recidivist suspect for sexually assaulting schoolgirl

The Judiciary Police (PJ) has arrested a 25-year-old local man suspected of sexually assaulting a schoolgirl.
According to the police, the man was previously involved in a similar crime nine years ago when he was a teenager. At the time, he was sentenced to 18 months of imprisonment.
The PJ informed that the man met the girl of an undisclosed age through an online messaging app last Sunday, May 16, and conversed with her for a period of three days. Following that, he arranged a meeting with the girl at an internet cafe in the Northern District.
On the grounds of having to visit a sick family member, he brought the girl from their meeting spot to an apartment and requested to have sex with her. When she refused the request, he allegedly began sexually assaulting the girl, the PJ informed.
The case was revealed after the girl reported the event to a social worker who works at her school. She then alerted the police and notified the Education and Youth Development Bureau.
The man was detained by the PJ and taken into questioning on May 21. RM
