Police in the southern province of Binh Phuoc on Sunday arrested a father and son for repeatedly raping a 14-year-old girl over the last six years.

In September, doctors discovered the ninth grader was 25 weeks pregnant when she showed up to receive a tetanus vaccination at school. She was underage and didn't receive proper pregnancy care, so the belly wouldn't grow signficantly.

According to police, Nguyen Van Minh, 59, used to rape the girl at her house when her parents were away. Minh told the girl not to tell anyone, making the girl think that it would be embarassing for her.

Minh repeatedly raped the girl until his daughter-in-law, Le Thi Soan, found out and told her husband, Nguyen Van Trung, 31.

Trung immediately tried to rape the girl at her house but failed to force her into it. Then, one day in February, the girl came to his house to borrow some spices. Trung raped her after threatening to tell everyone that she had intercourse with his father.

Minh and Trung have been charged with "child rape".

In Vietnam, individuals convicted of raping a minor are likely to face life imprisonment or the death penalty.
