Dao Dinh Duong, 28, has been arrested for raping a 15-year-old girl who he'd hired to help out at his store in the Central Highlands.

On Sunday, police in Gia Lai Province's Chu Se District arrested Duong for having sexual intercourse with a person under 16 years of age.

The police say that Duong hired the girl to help out at his curtain factory on June 18. Later he took her to Phu Cuong Waterfall in Ia Pal Commune and had sex with her.

The girl informed her family after she got home.

Duong then went to the victim's house to negotiate compensation, but the girl's family rejected his efforts and reported his actions to the police.

Having sexual intercourse with a person under 16 years of age is a crime punishable by one to five years in jail in Vietnam, and more if it is repeated or causes health damage. If the act is deemed as rape, the punishment is at least seven years imprisonment.
