Malaysia police detain 15-year-old for allegedly raping his mother

KUALA LUMPUR (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK): A 15-year-old teenager was detained by police for allegedly raping his mother in their home in Cheras here.

City CID deputy chief Khairi Ahrasa said the incident allegedly occurred when the 44-year-old mother, who works as a waitress at an entertainment outlet, returned home intoxicated at about 2am on Wednesday.

"The woman claimed that she went into the son's bedroom by mistake and slept in the room for several hours," said Asst Comm Khairi.

"When she woke up, she saw her son naked on top of her," he told reporters at the City police headquarters.

ACP Khairi said the woman then pushed the teenager away and hit him before complaining about the incident to a neighbour who advised her to lodge a police report.

He added that initial investigations revealed that the teenager was watching pornographic materials on his handphone before the incident.

It was learnt that the teenager's sister was also present in the home at the time of the incident.

ACP Khairi said the teenager was arrested after the incident while the victim has been referred to University Kebangsaan Malaysia Hospital.

The case was being investigated under Section 376A of the Penal Code for incest.
