9-year-old raped during burglary

NAI HARN: Nervous residents of Nai Harn Villas are awaiting the conclusion of a police investigation into three burglaries, during one of which a nine-year-old European girl was raped, and are hoping that an arrest will be made soon. The rape took place in the early hours of Saturday after the burglar got into the bedroom where the girl was sleeping alone. A neighboring apartment was robbed the day before the rape, and another one on Monday. The Gazette understands that police, acting on a description given to them by the victim, have been questioning all local men between the ages of 15 and 35 who have long hair, and have been taking hair samples and fingerprints to try to identify the perpetrator. The samples have been sent to the police forensics laboratory in Bangkok for comparison. Asked about the investigation, Chalong police declined to comment.
