LABUAN – A 16-year-old girl from Labuan has become a ‘sex addict’ after she was molested and raped by her stepfather for six years.

The rape by her stepfather is believed to have triggered an emotional disturbance in the teen. She has since had sex with six men she knew through WeChat.

It is understood that her six year-long ordeal of suffering sexual abuse at the hands of her stepfather was kept a secret from her mother.

The teenager, who is still schooling, is now five weeks pregnant.

She only realised that she was pregnant when she began suffering stomach pains, dizziness and vomiting. She sought treatment at a hospital, and her pregnancy was confirmed.

A police report was subsequently lodged on Tuesday after she confessed that she had been raped by her stepfather since she was 10. The last time she was raped by the man was on March 10.

It is understood that the girl lived with her mother and stepfather since 2010 after her birth parents separated.

Sources said the sexual abuse began when she was 10, when the man showed her pornographic videos and began touching her inappropriately. A month later, her stepfather raped her when the girl’s mother was not at home.

The source said the girl had initially refused to lodge a report against her stepfather as she said she ‘loved’ him, and that he was the family’s sole breadwinner.

Meanwhile, Labuan district police chief, Superintendent Muhamad Farid Ahmad, confirmed the report and said the stepfather was arrested the same day the report was lodged.

“The suspect, 39, has been remanded from Wednesday for further investigation,” he said
