ISKANDAR PUTERI – An outing with friends turned tragic for a clinic assistant when she ended up allegedly raped by one of them in Skudai.
Iskandar Puteri OCPD Supt Noor Hashim Mohamad said the 26-year-old victim who worked in Singapore was allegedly raped by a male friend whom she had known for about one and a half years.
The rape supposedly took place after a group drinking session.
He said that the incident was said to have happened at around 3pm at a budget hotel in Taman Tan Sri Yaacob on Sunday.
“There was a struggle between the victim and suspect at the hotel room earlier. The victim managed to run away to the suspect’s vehicle parked near the hotel some 30 minutes after that.
“The 29-year-old suspect then came out of the hotel room, negotiate with the victim and sent her to Taman Nusa Bestari after she persuaded him to send her back,” Supt Noor Hashim said at a press conference here yesterday.
He said that initial investigations showed that the group of Sarawakians, had gone out for breakfast in Taman Ungku Tun Aminah earlier, at around 9am.
They then decided to go to one of their friend’s house nearby for a drinking session.
“At around 2pm, after the drinking session, one of the victim’s friends sent her back to her house in Taman Nusa Bestari before she was picked up by the suspect to go out again,” he added.
He said that police have since detained the suspect, who is married with two children, on the same day at around 11pm in his house at Taman Selesa Jaya after the victim had lodged a police report. – ANN
