ISKANDAR PUTERI – A 15-year-old girl was molested by two men whom she had known for only two days through social media at Gelang Patah here.
Iskandar Puteri OCPD Supt Noor Hashim Mohamad said initial investigations showed that the trio decided to meet up for supper at about 11.15pm on Saturday (Oct 1) at Bukit Indah before the incident took place.
“After their supper, the girl was brought back to the suspects’ house in Taman Nusantara and was molested by the suspects. But they failed to go further as she was having her period.
“While the suspects were resting in the hall, the teenager managed to send her location to one of her friends via WhatsApp, seeking for help,” he said in a statement here on Tuesday.
He added that by the time help could arrive, the suspects, in their 20s, had dumped the Form Three student by the roadside in Taman Nusantara.
She then contacted her sister who came to pick her up.
Supt Noor Hashim said the case was being investigated under Section 354 of the Penal Code for assault or use of criminal force on a person with intent to outrage modesty.
