A police precinct in Kaur district, Bengkulu, is offering a Rp 10 million (US$696.97) reward for any individuals who have information on the whereabouts of an alleged child rapist.
Kaur Police chief Sr. Comr. Puji Prayetno said the police named 20-year-old male Erawan a suspect in the alleged sexual assault of a child. The police also put him on their most-wanted list.
Erawan allegedly raped a child in April. The police have been looking for him for the past three months.
“We are working day and night and doing our best to catch the suspect. However, we need information [on his whereabouts],” Puji said on Thursday as quoted by kompas.com.
He added the police expected Erawan’s family to hand him over or at least inform law enforcers of his current location.
Puji said the reward would encourage members of the general public to provide the police with information regarding Erawan.
“We will arrest him immediately once we obtain the information.” (dpk)
