A Malaysian boy aged six has been accused of rap*ng his five-year-old cousin in a case believed to be the one of the first of its kind in the world.
Doctors discovered she had been s3xually penetrated after a medical check-up – and despite initial $cepticism a consultant urologist at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital said it was possible for a child that young to have an ere*tion.
The extraordinary case came to light after the children’s grandmother found them nak*d and playing ‘mothers and fathers’ at the family home in the town of Pendang, Kedah – a rural area covered with paddy fields
The girl’s 32 year old mother, a medical assistant, then lodged a report on New Year’s Day, Malaysia’s Star newspaper reported.
But the paper said that the following day the mother told police she was not keen to pursue the case and had only reported it so her daughter could be checkedat a hospital.
The doctor who examined the girl and found a minor tear in the hym*n alerted the Malacca Action Group for Parents in Education.
Chairman Mak Chee Hin said: ‘It is shocking that young children are capable of such acts.
‘Blame should be levelled at the adul*s who do not give guidance and care to the children.’
He added that a full medical report would determine whether the six year old boy is the youngest predator in the country.
The case comes just weeks after a boy of 11 allegedly rap*d a six-year-old girl at a babysitter’s home in Alor Gajah.
The consultant urologist, who asked not to be named, told The Star that that it was possible for a boy of that age to have an ere*tion, although such occurrences were more common among Caucasian children.
S3xual development began from a child’s first year, he said, pointing out that some baby boys were even born with erec*ions.
‘It could be due to witnessing an adult performing an intimate act or watching por*ographic videos’

He added: ‘In Western countries, medical reports suggest that young boys and girls can experience org*sm although boys will not be able to ejac*late until pub*erty.
‘For Asian children, it is very rare, although there have been rare cases that are mostly attributed to surroundings and upbringing.’
This case, he added, could have happened due to exposure to po*no*raphic materials.
“Even if the child had an erec*ion, it would have only lasted for a while and not to the extent of pen*tration.
