A traditional healer in Kompong Cham specializing in love potions was charged Sunday with sexually assaulting nine teenage boys who came to him seeking spells and charms to attract girls, police and court officials said. The suspect, Ly Vanny, 33, was arrested on Thursday after two local families in Prey Chhor district’s Trapaing Preah commune filed complaints with police accusing him of raping their sons, aged 14 and 17, said district deputy police chief Suon Ros. “After we got these two files, seven additional teenagers claimed that they were indecently assaulted by this love healer too,” he said.
