The alleged offences took place at the Lakeside residential area in Nguyễn An Ninh Ward, Vũng Tàu City, according to the provincial investigative police who made the decision today.
A Lakeside resident accused the man, a resident in Vũng Tàu City, of sexually abusing her six-year-old daughter, zing.vn reported.
The resident said the 76-year-old had brought the child to a staircase in the residential area to commit the offence, which damaged the victim’s physical and mental health.
