PETALING JAYA: A trip to Malaysia turned hellish for an American woman after she was robbed, wrongfully confined and raped by two men.
The 25-year-old woman had just finished shopping at a mall at Mutiara Damansara on Monday when she hailed a taxi.
The taxi driver, who already had one passenger sitting in the front passenger seat, picked up the woman.
Sources revealed that instead of heading to her intended destination, the victim was robbed of her belongings before being taken on an 80km terror ride from Mutiara Damansara to a house in Sungai Pelek, Sepang.
The two abductors wasted no time in taking turns raping the woman.
It is learnt that the woman had later managed to free herself on Tuesday and sought the assistance of passers-by before lodging a police report.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed confirmed police have received a report over the incident.
“We have arrested one man so far and investigations are still on-going.
“We hope to detain the second suspect soon,” he said.
Those with information on the case are urged to contact the police hotline at 03-2052 9999 or visit the nearest police station.
