A teen was arrested on a charge of rape after allegedly raping his own sister because he was angry with his parents, police in Singapore said.

The 18-year-old man, who was not identified was charged with four counts of rape after being accused of having sex with his 12-year-old sister to take revenge against his parents for leaving him behind.

The Community Court heard that the 18-year-old man was raised by his grandparents until he was seven years old as his parents moved to the United States.

The abuse began when the girl was 10 years old. One day, the girl was ill and resting at home. When the brother came home from school, he lifted her shirt and abused her.

After the incident, he told her not to tell anyone about what he had done to her. The incident came to light five days later, when a school counselor asked the victim about her life at home.

During questioning, the brother admitted to abusing his sister because he wanted to take revenge against his parents. The teen faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
