Police in Ho Chi Minh City have filed charges of child sexual abuse against V.T.T., 21, from An Giang Province, after a minor victim who lives in the city came forward to testify.

According to preliminary inspection, T. first approached the victim, 14-year-old L.P.H.M. from Tan Phu District, in February 2020.

He managed to lure T. out to meet in person, picked her up at her house around 1:00 pm March 10, 2020, and molested her on the rooftop of an apartment building nearby.

T. then brought the girl to his rented room in Thu Duc City under Ho Chi Minh City and went on to sexually abuse her multiple times there.

On March 14, M.’s father C. caught wind of the situation and asked T. to bring her daughter home via Facebook Messenger. 

He later reported T. to police after finding out that M. was using birth control pills.

Nabbed by police officers, the suspect admitted his crime of child sexual abuse.

M. claimed to have been coaxed into sex acts by a man named ‘An Binh’ on Facebook, while another man using the Facebook account ‘Quang Duong’ also lured her out for sexual assault multiple times.

Investigators are working with the Ministry of Information and Communications to identify these two men.
