A woman has told police she was gang-raped by three men at gunpoint at her apartment in the southern city of Phnom Penh, after being attacked by the suspects as she walked home from work.
Police said the three men – aged between 21 and 28 – approached the woman and threatened to kill her if she told anyone.
They demanded money, she said.
The woman told police that she was attacked by three armed men on April 1 after returning home from a night out.
“They forced me into a vehicle, they threw me out and then they raped me,” the woman told Phnom Pampong police.
The woman said she was not aware of her right to refuse the men sexual intercourse or call police.
The suspects are still at large, police said.
Phnom Penan police spokesman Lt Col Phay Nghiem told The Associated Press news agency the three suspects were detained for questioning.
Police had previously said the woman’s identity had not been confirmed.
The attack comes just days after Cambodia’s national court ruled that two women raped in separate attacks were not victims of rape but had committed false accusations against each other.
“I was very shaken by the fact that they would accuse me of something which I did not do,” the victim said.
“I feel humiliated by them.
I am very angry that they are doing this to me.”
