Teen Rapes, Kills Child before Throwing Body in Garbage Dumpster

A 17-year-old teenager on Sunday raped a Syrian child, 5, before murdering him and throwing his body in a garbage dumpster in the Akkar town of Halba.

“The Halba police station received a phone call from Mahmoud Aa., who reported that his son N. Aa., 17, had confessed to him that he had killed a child and thrown his corpse in a garbage dumpster near the Halba vocational institute,” said a statement issued by the Internal Security Forces in the afternoon.

Following coordination with the father, the aforementioned teen was arrested at his parents' home, the ISF added.

It said the body of “5-year-old Syrian child Mohammed Kh.” was found in the garbage dumpster with “multiple knife stab wounds to one of his flanks.”

During interrogation, the teenager “confessed to raping the child and killing him with a knife inside a cafe owned by the victim's parents, as well as to putting the corpse in a garbage dumpster in the area.”

“The report of north Lebanon's forensic doctor said the child suffered a sexual assault and died after receiving five stabs in his right flank,” the ISF said in its statement.

“The used knife has been confiscated and was referred along with the detainee to the Halba judicial department for further investigations,” it added.
