‘Drug-crazed animal’ caught

JOHOR BARU: It wasn’t enough that he crashed his car into the little girl’s bicycle, he forced her into his vehicle and made her perform oral sex on him.

A man described as “worse than an animal” raped the girl and brutally slashed the 10-year-old when she began to fight back.

State police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said the suspect was a 28-year-old who was high on drugs when arrested.

“His actions are worse than that of an animal. This is what happens when people consume drugs. They became inhuman,” he told a press conference at the state police headquarters here yesterday.

SDCP Mohd Mokhtar said the girl had been warded to the Sultanah Fa­­ti­­mah Specialist Hospital.

“She is in a stable condition but still very traumatised,” he added.

The victim was cycling to a religious school two kilometres away from her house in Bakri, Muar, when the suspect spotted her at around 2pm on Tuesday.

He knocked her down with his car, then grabbed and forced her into the front passenger seat before speeding away.

A farmer, who was accompanying his daughter to the same religious school, heard the victim’s scream and chased after the suspect’s car on foot, but give up halfway.

It is learnt that the suspect drove to a nearby dumpsite where he raped the victim and forced her to perform oral sex on him in the car.

SDCP Mohd Mokhtar said that when the victim started resisting, the man became angry and knocked her head and started slashing her abdomen and private parts with a sharp weapon.

The farmer had by then informed the victim’s parents who lodged a police report.

“They located the man’s car at a petrol station along Jalan Bakri about 15 minutes later with the man and his bloodied victim still inside,” said SDCP Mohd Mokhtar.
