In a disturbing incident, a stepfather is under scrutiny for allegedly committing multiple acts of sexual assault against his 10 year old daughter in the Phanom Sarakham District of Chachoengsao Province. The concerned mother discovered the abusive incidents yesterday, prompted by unsettling signs and changes in her daughter’s behaviour.

Initially, the daughter remained silent, primarily due to the threats made by her stepfather, who warned of dire consequences if she revealed the ordeal. The shocking truth behind this sexual assault case unfolded when the girl’s mother, Saeng (surname withheld), bravely stepped forward, accusing her new husband—whom they had only been living with for a month—of violating her daughter repeatedly at the family’s residence in Phanom Sarakham district.

The suspicious attitude of the child, uncharacteristic reluctance to sleep at home, and abnormal behaviour convinced Saeng to investigate the case of child abuse and sexual assault further. Saeng decided to consult her mother-in-law who also noticed the same unusual behaviour in the child and suggested she check the child’s private parts.

After examining and finding suspicious signs, Saeng reported the child abuse matter to the police and took her daughter for a medical examination on July 3. The preliminary medical results confirmed sexual assault. Saeng learned about at least three instances of assaults: An initial unsuccessful one at their residence, followed by two more successful attacks at the fringe of a dam, reported KhaoSod.

The girl’s abnormal behaviour started around June 16. She gradually became anxious, fearful, less talkative and hesitant to return home. This behaviour change indicated a clear fear of the stepfather which originated from his threat of eliminating the family if she broke her silence about the sexual exploits.

Furthermore, Saeng disclosed it was an aunt and a teacher who triggered her to understand the severity of the situation. They noticed something unusual about the child during her bath time and coaxed the child to reveal the truth, ultimately unravelling the sexual assault.

However, Saeng believed that it wasn’t only her new husband involved in these attacks. There was another suspicious person in the village who was frequently seen accompanying the child outside. This individual promptly disappeared from the village after the incident, raising further eyebrows. Initial forensic examination of child abuse revealed the possibility of two people being involved in the assault.

The local police have issued an arrest warrant for the alleged stepfather and are awaiting a more detailed medical examination of the victim to gather conclusive evidence against the culprit. The allegations made by Saeng against the other village resident require further forensic evidence. Meanwhile, the hunt continues to collect evidence and testimony to detain the offenders and apply appropriate legal actions for those involved in this child abuse case.
