KUALA LUMPUR – Police have arrested a man known as “Datuk Ivan” who allegedly deceived and raped women he met via WeChat.
City CID chief SAC Rusdi Mohd Isa said the 37-year-old self-employed man was picked up in the Dang Wangi area at 6.15pm on Wednesday.
“So far, police have received two reports from two women aged 30 and 25 against the individual,” he said in a statement here on Thursday.
Rusdi said the first report was lodged on June 9 of an incident on March 6, 2016 while the second case report was received on June 14 relating to an incident on May 4 this year.
He said a check by police showed the suspect did not possess a Datukship.
The cases are being investigated under Section 354 and Section 377 CA of the Penal Code for outraging modesty and rape.
The suspect has been remanded for six days from Thursday to assist in the investigation.
