A 25-YEAR-OLD woman has been traumatised after an offer of a high-paying job in a restaurant turned out to be an attempt to rope her into prostitution, reported China Press.
The woman, who was locked up for seven months by the man who offered her the job, managed to escape on Monday. She subsequently lodged a police report.
According to the daily, the woman was raped by the man several times while imprisoned in a house in Kepong.
The man also hit her when she refused to prostitute herself.
It was believed that at least eight women were locked up by the man and forced to become prostitutes.
> The Chinese daily also reported that Hong Kong-born television and radio presenter Angel Wong Chui Ling had married her 43-year-old Malaysian boyfriend on Saturday.
Although Wong and her husband had known each other for 15 years, they only started dating a year and a half ago.
In an interview, Wong said the couple did not have any plan to go on honeymoon as they were both busy with work currently.
“We will have a family gathering at an island resort after the wedding ceremony,” she said.
Wong denied that she was pregnant but added that they hoped to have a baby soon.
