PETALING JAYA: A 33-year-old lawyer surrendered himself to the police on Friday in connection with the molest case of a university student at a condominium in Bandar Sungai Long, Kajang.
Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Othman Nanyan said the suspect has been detained after he was positively identified by the victim.
"He has been remanded until Sunday to assist in the investigations," ACP Othman said.
The Star reported that two students of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman related their ordeal of being sexually attacked in a live Facebook video to warn other women to be more vigilant.
Cristal Chua and Tammy Ong, both in their 20s, said they were walking to Chua’s rented condominium when a man suddenly emerged and “grabbed” Chua's buttocks.
They said the man also tried to grab Ong’s breasts but she shouted, and he fled.
They said the horrifying experience began when they arrived at one of the condominium blocks.
Chua punched the password digits to unlock the door at the entrance and proceeded to enter.
The man held the door open and crept in behind them. Thinking that he was also one of the residents there, the two girls paid no attention - until he grabbed Chua’s buttocks when they were on the first floor.
“I thought it was Tammy at first. I was shocked to see a man behind me. He then turned towards Tammy and tried to molest her but she shouted,” said Chua, adding that the man was plump and quite short,
and wore a black jersey with the words “Mike and no 10” at the back.
Chua took out her phone to record a video while Ong tried to give chase.
