The Form Three student from Kampung Jambu Kubur here said the incident occurred at about 2pm, when she was walking home alone from school on June 24.
She later noticed that a motorcyclist was following her slowly, and suddenly when they reached near some bushes, the suspect stopped his motorcycle and grabbed her hand before pushing her into bushes where he started to strip-off her clothes before raping her.
The suspect warned her not to tell anyone about the incident before fleeing the scene.
The victim's parent brought her to lodge a report at the Chukai police station at 10.20am today.
District police chief Superintendent Che Suza Che Hitam who confirmed the report said the case is investigated under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape.
"If convicted, the suspect could face a maximum of 20 years' imprisonment," Che Suza added.
