HÀ NỘI — Police in Yên Châu District, Sơn La Province, have arrested and launched legal proceedings against a 29-year-old man named Nguyễn Văn H. for raping his 15-year-old stepdaughter.

His wife is H.T.N, 36, who has a daughter whose name was given as only H.T.R.L. to protect her identity, from the previous marriage.

Back in August 2020, H. created a fake Facebook account named “Hoàng Long” to flirt with the girl.

After talking for some time, he asked L. to take photos and videos of her private parts and send through the Hoàng Long account, then he used the sensitive material to ‘blackmail’ her into having sex with him, threatening to release the videos and images onto social media.

From August 26, 2020, to March 19, 2022, he has repeatedly used the tactic to sexually abuse L. when his wife was not at home.

His wife began to notice that she frequently found her cash missing so on the morning of March 19, she installed a camera on the bed top.

In the afternoon of the same day, she took out the memory card from the camera and saw her husband having sex with her daughter in their bed.

She questioned her daughter who told her the act had been going for the past two to three years but she was too afraid to tell her mother as he threatened to kill both of them if she lets the secret out.

Later that night, “overwhelmed with anger” N. used a knife to cut off her husband’s genitalia and then went to the police to confess while he was taken to emergency care at Sơn La General Hospital, according to the police.

After surgery was carried out and he was discharged from hospital, Yên Châu District’s police immediately arrested him and began an investigation.

The police said they were also reviewing N.’s case.

The two reportedly had two children together in this marriage. — VNS
