KAJANG – A woman was shocked to discover that her 40-year-old boyfriend had been sexually assaulting her 12-year-old daughter at home since April.
Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Ahmad Dzaffir Mohd Yussoff said police received a report from the 44-year-old mother about the alleged rape at Kajang Perdana here last Thursday.
ACP Ahmad Dzaffir said the mother came to know about the incident after peeking into her daughter’s diary which was found in her room at about 1am on Wednesday.
“In the diary, the victim said she was molested by the suspect in early April when her mother went to China for work,” he said in a statement on Thursday.
The victim told her mother that the suspect had gone into her room and raped her four times with the latest incident taking place in July, he said.
He added that the victim was the younger child among two siblings from a previous marriage.
ACP Ahmad Dzaffir said that the woman had known the suspect for about five years and the suspect had been living in her home.
He added that the woman would leave the victim in the care of the suspect when she went on business trips.
ACP Ahmad Dzaffir said that police arrested the suspect at about 11pm on Monday at Jalan Semenyih near here.
He said the suspect, who works as a manager in a company, had been remanded for six days until Aug 20.
ACP Ahmad Dzaffir said the case was being investigated under Section 376 of the Penal Code for rape.
