PETALING JAYA – A 53-yo man’s molestation of two boys and a girl at a flat in Sri Damansara has landed him in trouble with the police.
Petaling Jaya District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner Mohamad Fakhrudin Abdul Hamid said the father of one of the victims lodged a report at 5 pm yesterday.
He added that the father claimed to have seen his seven-year-old son being raped on the steps of the flat after seeing a recording of the incident shown to him by the chairman of the residents’ association.
“In the 19-second recording, the suspect was seen hugging and committing indecent acts on the victim.
“He was later arrested with the help of residents and police,” he said in a statement yesterday (Sept 29).
In addition, Mohamad Fakhrudin said the suspect wasn’t a resident of the flat at Sri Damansara and claimed to be visiting an old friend.
“The suspect had also committed the same act against the victim’s two friends at the same location.
“He will be remanded for seven days until October 5 to assist investigations,’ he said.
The case is being investigated under Section 14 (a) of the Sexual Offenses Against Children Act 2017 (Act 792), which provides a maximum jail sentence of 20 years and whipping if convicted.
Please do not leave your children unattended in the neighbourhood or residential area to avoid such tragedy.
