Lawyer de­tained over mo­lest of stu­dents

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

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.
