Cousins al­legedly mo­lested by sit­ter’s hus­band

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

PETALING JAYA: For two years, two cousins aged seven and eight kept their si­lence on be­ing sex­u­ally as­saulted by their babysit­ter’s 54-year-old hus­band.

If it was not for the fa­ther of the older girl, the as­saults may have con­tin­ued to this day.

On Sept 26, the fa­ther had gone to fetch his daugh­ter at the babysit­ter’s house in Pu­chong Per­mai when he was told that the girl was bathing.

As he waited, he no­ticed a man walk­ing into a bath­room his daugh­ter was in be­fore lock­ing the door.

Puz­zled by what he saw, he waited for his daugh­ter to step out and on tak­ing her home, he ques­tioned her about the man who had en­tered the bath­room.

The girl re­vealed that the man was the hus­band of the babysit­ter and had on sev­eral oc­ca­sions gone into the bath­room while she took her bath and had mo­lested her.

The vic­tim told her fa­ther that the sus­pect, who is a fac­tory worker would, among other acts, rub his pri­vate part on hers dur­ing the as­saults.

Sources said the vic­tim’s fa­ther then con­tacted his sis­ter, who also sends her seven-yearold daugh­ter to the same babysit­ter.

On ques­tion­ing the younger girl, the woman was shocked to learn that her daugh­ter had also been mo­lested by the sus­pect.

The fam­i­lies of the girls took them to a hos­pi­tal for a med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion be­fore lodg­ing a po­lice re­port on Satur­day.

Subang Jaya deputy po­lice chief Supt Lee Swee Meng said the sus­pect was ar­rested soon af­ter the re­port was lodged and is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated for out­rag­ing the mod­esty of the vic­tims.

Po­lice are also check­ing if there were oth­ers vic­tims who may have been mo­lested by the sus­pect.
