KUALA LUMPUR: An alert mall security guard has rescued a woman from being robbed and molested in the basement of the Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.
The woman was parking her car on Level B2 at about 8pm on Wednesday when she was approached by the suspect who told her that she had a flat tyre.
He offered to help her fix the tyre but suddenly punched her in the face and shoved her into her car.
“He sat her on his lap and groped her neck. He also asked her to hand him her valuables,” said city CID director Datuk Ku Chin Wah.
However, the victim managed to fight back and bit the suspect’s finger. The commotion alerted a security guard on patrol, who then apprehended the man.
In a statement, Pavilion KL said shoppers are encouraged to ask security guards to escort them to their car if they feel unsafe.
