A 46-year old Filipina domestic worker in Macau has been arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a young boy while bathing him.

The woman was hired by a couple living at an apartment on Rua Nova à Guia in August last year, the Macau Daily News reported. She was responsible for taking care of a boy aged three years and eight months.

In October, her employers needed to take care of elderly members of their family and they asked the domestic worker to look after the young boy from 3 pm to 9 pm.

On Saturday, when the boy spent some time with his mother, he complained that he did not like the domestic worker kissing his private part. The mother called police who arrested the woman on the same day.

After an initial investigation, she admitted to police that she had assaulted the boy sexually one time when she bathed him. She was sent to the public prosecution office to be investigated for rape.
