Teenager Admits To Horrific Home Invasion And Assault

A drunken teenager burglar has admitted giving a woman a hickey as she lay sleeping next to her husband.

Lang Kouth, 19, was on bail when he broke into a couples home, crawled into their bed and sexually assaulted the sleeping woman, whose baby was also in the room.

When she woke up, Kouth fled, stealing a mobile phone, keys and a car.

Kouth has now pleaded guilty in the Melbourne Magistrates Court to five charges over the July 24 attack, including sexual assault, theft, and aggravated burglary.

He had originally been charged with 10 offences.

Kouth has been denied bail, with magistrate Jelena Popovic saying no bail terms she could impose would protect the public.

Detective Senior Constable Luke Smith said the couple’s 17-month-old daughter had been asleep in the room when Kouth attacked his victim, 21.

“The accused began kissing and biting (the woman) on the lips, neck and face quite aggressively. He was also rubbing himself up against (the woman) in a sexual way,” Sen-Det Smith said.

“(The woman) then reached behind and felt the accused’s hair, realising that the person kissing, biting and rubbing her was not her partner,” he said.

“She opened her eyes and screamed in horror.

“The victim was terrified and felt sick that someone was in her room, in her bed, touching her,” Sen-Det Smith said.

Police say that after Kouth had fled he was spotted on the South Gippsland Highway, where he slammed into a tree at 160km/h.

Kouth is due back in court next month.
