In the dock: Malex Ridzuan being escorted to the Sessions Court in Ipoh.
IPOH: A 27-year-old jobless man was charged with five counts of various sex offences, impersonating a policeman and stealing.
Malex Ridzuan Isrol from Taman Batu Gajah Perdana, Pusing, was charged in three separate Sessions Courts here yesterday with rape, attempted rape, sodomy and attempted sodomy against four different victims, two of whom are minors.
He was charged in the Batu Gajah magistrate’s courts with two counts of impersonating a policeman and stealing under Section 170 and Section 379 of the Penal Code.
He is expected to be charged at the Kampar magistrate’s court today for impersonating a policeman and making threats in relation to the case.
Malex Ridzuan, who was not represented, claimed trial to all the offences.
He is accused of raping and trying to sodomise a 17-year-old girl on Sept 25 at a forest area near Jalan Changkat Mendaling in Batu Gajah.
Deputy Public Prosecutor Nurul Hafizah Kamaludin requested that no bail be offered to the accused on grounds that he was an alleged serial rapist.
She told Sessions judge Rushan Lutfi Mohamed that Malex Rizuan also faced nine other charges against him.
In another Sessions Court, Malex Ridzuan was charged with the attempted rape of a 15-year-old girl at about 9.50pm along a dirt road in Adat Mendaling, Batu Gajah, on Sept 11.
He was also charged with sodomising a 13-year-old girl on Sept 21 at a duck farm at Taman Alam Kinta and attempted rape of a 30-year-old woman on Sept 28 at a forest area in Kampung Pisang, Batu Gajah.
