Boy, 15 charged with rape of sister


A 15-YEAR-old male in Manus has been arrested and charged with two counts of incest and rape of his 12-year-old sister.
The youth, from Derembat village, PNKA local level government in Lorengau went into the room of the victim two weeks ago when she was preparing for a shower and raped her.
Acting police commander Senior Inspector David Yapu said the suspect threatened if she screamed.
He said the suspect, after being charged by police, was released to his parents and probation officers and was expected to appear before the juvenile court.
“Sexual offences, especially those happening within the family unit, are a worrying trend,” Yapu said.
He appealed to parents to take care and look after their daughters to avoid such incidents, especially in their own family units.
