A motel owner accused of assisting the sexual exploitation of a minor has been arrested, while further investigations into the suspects who had carried out the act have gotten underway, police reveal.
The victim is believed to be a 14 year old girl residing in the Anamaduwa area.
The perpetrator had lured the individual into the room by befriending the girl, while on a bus and then supposedly sexually assaulting her over four times, at the motel.
The owner had failed to note down contact details, or proof of identification from the individuals accused, and hence has been arrested.
The victim has been admitted to the Halawatha Base hospital.
