A 15-year-old boy was arrested on Friday night for allegedly raping a five-year-old girl under Jhenaigait upazila in Sherpur.
The suspect is a resident of the upazila's Dupuria village.
"He went to the victim's house around 10:00am on Thursday when her mother was out of home. He lured the girl with promises of giving her dates and raped her," said Biplob Kumar Biswas, officer-in-charge of Jhenaigati Police Station.
When her mother returned, the child told her what had happened. When words about the incident spread, the teenager fled his home.
Locals detained him on Friday night when he came home and handed him over to police.
He has been shown arrested in a case filed by the victim's mother, reports UNB.
