New Straits Times - - News -

KUALA LUMPUR: Po­lice are track­ing down two men, who are al­legedly in­volved in a rob­beryrape in­ci­dent, which was caught on video at an il­le­gal gam­bling den in Ban­dar Kin­rara, Pu­chong.

It is learnt that the sus­pects were in fact ar­rested at a road­block by Wangsa Maju po­lice on Thurs­day, the same day the in­ci­dent hap­pened for sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour.

City Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tion Depart­ment chief Se­nior As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Rusdi Mohd Isa said they were, how­ever, re­leased after the doc­u­men­ta­tion process.

“We were un­aware that they were in­volved in the case. We only re­alised when their photo went vi­ral on so­cial me­dia. We are now search­ing for them,” he said yes­ter­day.

Ser­dang district po­lice chief As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Me­gat Mo­hamad Amin­ud­din Me­gat Alias said his team had iden­ti­fied the sus­pects as well as the crime scene.

He con­firmed that the owner had lodged a re­port over the in­ci­dent at 4.30pm on Satur­day.

He said po­lice would also in­ves­ti­gate whether the en­ter­tain­ment out­let was oper­at­ing with a valid li­cence.

Closed-cir­cuit tele­vi­sion cam­era footage of the crime has since gone vi­ral on so­cial me­dia.

The video shows two men en­ter­ing the premises.

One was seen ran­sack­ing the premises while the other raped the cashier in a cor­ner.

They then switched roles. Po­lice have formed a task force on the case.
