Lawyer detained over molest of students
KUALA LUMPUR: A lawyer has been detained by police for allegedly molesting two female students at a condominium in Bandar Sungai Long, Kajang, last Tuesday.
The 33-year-old surrendered at the Kajang police headquarters on Saturday.
Kajang district police chief ACP Othman Nanyan said he was remanded for two days to facilitate investigations into the case, that had been widely publicised on social media.
The two girls, Cristal Chua and Tammy Ong, both in their 20s and students of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman in Sungai Long, related their ordeal in a Facebook video to warn other women to be vigilant.
They revealed how a man had followed them into their condominium block and groped Chua’s buttocks.
They said the man also tried to grab Ong’s breasts but she screamed for help and he fled.
The girls said the man had followed them after they had keyed in the password to enter their condominium block.
Thinking that he was one of the residents, the girls paid no attention to him until he attacked them.
