President Lee Myung-bak apologized to the public for recent sexual assault cases in Korea during his visit to the National Police Agency Friday morning.
The president's visit comes a day after a seven-year-old girl in Naju, South Jeolla Province, was violently raped by a man who broke into her parent's house while she was asleep.
President Lee expressed his condolences to the familiy of the victim as well as the public, and pledged to strengthen public order and security, making it the utmost priority for the remainder of his term.
He also urged the government and political parties to work together to put forth fundamental measures to root out sexual abuse and assaults in Korea, and stressed that the police should mentally rearm themselves for the safety of the people.
And, this just coming in the suspect in the Naju child abduction-rape case has just been arrested.
The suspect is, reportedly, a close by neighbor in his 20s.
