3 held for child abuse in Muscat

Muscat - 

Three persons were arrested on charges of child abuse in Muscat last week. An ROP official said that the arrests were made in connection with three separate cases.

“In the first case, an eight year old disabled child was abused by a relative. In another incident, an 11 year old boy was molested and attacked by a citizen.

“The accused escaped when the child started shouting for help.

“In the third case, Al Khoudh Police Station received complaint from an Omani woman that her 11 year old daughter was harassed by a worker at home.”

The ROP has called on parents to educate their children regarding these crimes. It has also urged parents to report any such case either through their hotline number or by visiting the nearest police station.
