Update: 09:03 | 16/12/2020

Police in the southern Ca Mau Province on Monday detained a man for allegedly raping four boys staying with him at a local social protection center.

Pham Chi Cuong, 21, is under investigation for "rape" and "molestation of a person under 16," the Supreme People's Court reported.

The arrest came after an employee of the Ca Mau social protection center filed a complaint to local police, stating the culprit had repeatedly molested and engaged in non-consensual sexual intercourse with four formerly homeless boys aged between 8 and 13 inside the bathroom and men's room.
