South Korean police are offering a five-million-won (US$4,150) reward for information leading to the arrest of a man suspected of raping a seven-year-old Vietnamese girl Saturday, local media reported.


The suspect is said to have found the girl playing alone in the street in Jangan, Seoul, at around 12.30 p.m. before taking her to her apartment where he raped her, according to newswire Joogang Daily.


The man, who is assumed to be in his thirties, fled the scene with some $200 worth of gold rings and 10,000 won ($8.23) in cash, it said.


A neighbor later found the girl crying outside the apartment and called her parents who came to South Korea five years ago and are expected to acquire Korean citizenship this September, the news source said.


The girl's father was the first to arrive on the scene and called the police at 1.04 p.m.


Based on the victim's description, Dongdaemun police have made a composite sketch of the suspect, according to the newswire.


The investigation is ongoing.
