SURAT THANI: A 51-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly raping and impregnating his 12-year-old granddaughter.

The suspect, identified only as Sommai, was caught fleeing after the girl’s parents complained to police.

He was found hiding in a construction site camp in Koh Samui district and has been detained at Nong Han provincial police station pending legal action, Crime Suppression Division chief Pol Maj Gen Jirabhop Bhuridej said on Tuesday.

He said the child went to live with her grandparents in Udon Thani’s Nong Han district six years ago. Mr Sommai allegedly raped his granddaughter repeatedly at knife point over the course of four years when the grandmother was not at home. The girl eventually fell pregnant.

A teacher at the girl's school learned of her plight and advised her parents to go to the police.
