AN American doctor has been arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing two teenage boys.

The United States citizen was arrested in the Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district at 9.3am on Friday, said Keo Thea, director of the capital’s Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Police, yesterday.

He said that the suspect had been detained by police and was being questioned regarding the purchase of child prostitution services in Cambodia.

“I expect that he will be charged by the municipal court on Monday,” he said.

The American, he added, had been arrested following contact with the FBI and a search had been conducted of his home.
