JOHOR BARU: A Form Five student who refused to marry a man who befriended her less than a month ago was abducted, tortured and molested by the man. He also made video recordings of her in the nude.
The suspect, in his 20s, hit the girl with a wooden handle of a hammer. The man threatened to circulate her naked video recordings on the Internet if she escaped from him. However, the girl mustered up enough courage to escape and sought the assistance of police, who arrested the suspect along with three other men several days ago.
Police also recovered at least two parang, knives and a hammer from the suspects.
Sources said that the two had had a normal relationship but the girl suspected something amiss about the man’s character and decided to end their relationship several days ago. However, the man took the break-up badly and together with his friends started harassing the girl at her house. It is learnt that the suspects managed to convince the victim to come out and see him for one last time by threatening to harm her mother. When the girl came out to see him, he bundled her into a car and took her to his house in Taman Daya before tying her up and torturing her.
Sources said the suspect drugged her before using his mobile phone to take a video of him molesting her in the house toilet. The suspect then warned the girl that the video would be distributed if she ran away. The next day, the girl managed to escape and with the help of a taxi driver, lodged a police report.
