One-time hero charged with rape

An obscure movie actor has been arrested on charges of raping a teenager, the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office said yesterday.

The 34-year-old man, only identified by his family name Yoo, allegedly had sexual intercourse with a 17-year-old girl in September whom he met via a smartphone chat. When she refused to go on a second date with him five days later Yoo lured her into a motel for a “conversation” and raped her, according to the prosecution.

Ironically, Yoo, a martial arts expert, was briefly placed under media spotlight in 2008 when he caught a robber armed with a knife. He received a “Brave Citizen Prize” from the police for the act.

`용감한 시민상` 수상 영화배우, 채팅으로 만난 10대 성폭행

`용감한 시민상`을 받은 영화배우가 10대 청소년을 성폭행한 혐의로 재판에 넘겨졌다.

서울중앙지검 여성아동범죄조사부(부장검사 김진숙)는 19일 미성년자를 모텔로 데려가 성폭행한 혐의(아동청소년의 성보호에 관한 법률 위반)로 영화배우 유모씨(34)를 구속기소했다.

검찰에 따르면 유씨는 지난달 10일 스마트폰 채팅으로 알게 된 김모양(17)을 서울의 한 모텔로 데려가 성폭행한 혐의다.

유씨는 2008년 흉기를 든 강도를 다른 시민과 함께 맨손으로 잡아 경찰로부터 `용감한 시민상`을 받았다.
