MALACCA: Another teenage girl from Masjid Tanah has alleged that she was almost prostituted by her male acquaintance.
The incident came just three weeks after a man stormed a house here and fought two men inside before rescuing his 13-year-old daughter who was forced into the flesh trade.
In the latest incident, a Form Two girl claimed in a police report on Sunday that her male acquaintance had threatened to sell her to a Thai pimp if she refused to entertain his male friends.
The teenager alleged that at about 3am on Aug 3, she went on a joy ride with a male acquaintance nicknamed Gemok to a resort in Pengkalan Balak in Alor Gajah.
Gemok then handed over the 14-year-old to three strangers who then brought her to another chalet nearby before raping her, claiming that they had paid Gemok for her services.
The girl was also threatened with being sold to a pimp in Thailand if she failed to obey Gemok’s request.
When contacted, the girl’s relative said the teenager confided in him that she made a big mistake following Gemok that night.
“We have lodged a police report and will let investigations reveal whether Gemok was linked to any prostitution ring in Thailand,” he said.
In her police report, the girl claimed that she was raped. It is not immediately known whether the girl is hooked on drugs like the teenager in the Merlimau case.
The Star on Aug 7 reported that a 46-year-old man rescued his 13-year-old daughter from prostitution on July 26 after her 26-year-old boyfriend purportedly pimped the girl to nine men.
The Merlimau girl was also into drugs and received RM20 per sex session from her boyfriend, who also brought her to hotels.
The father of four said his daughter excelled in her studies until she joined the wrong company after her UPSR examinations.
According to the businessman, his daughter ran away from home for the first time with her boyfriend in October last year after he had held a dinner to celebrate her scoring 3As in the UPSR.
