Police Press Rape Charge Against Park Si-hoo

Park Si-hoo Park Si-hoo

Police investigating charges that actor Park Si-hoo raped an aspiring actress in February handed the case to prosecutors on Tuesday after concluding that the actor should be indicted.

Park is accused of raping the woman at his home after meeting her in a bar on the night of Feb. 14.

Police have recommended that Park be indicted on the charges of quasi-rape and injury resulting from it as the victim was unconscious and able neither to resist nor consent at the time of the incident, and because she was injured while being raped.

Park denies the charges, accusing the woman of changing her account several times, and vowed to prove his innocence.
