PHUKET: Police arrested an alleged pedophile for the rape of a 10-year-old girl in Phuket on November 11.

The 24-year-old man, who lived across the street from the girl and her parents, faces charges of separating the child from her parents, molesting a person under the age of 15 and rape.

Police took the man from Nakhon Sri Thammarat into custody under an arrest warrant issued on November 15, four days after the girl’s parents filed a complaint to Phuket City Police.
