BALIK PULAU: A man, who was trying to escape after molesting a woman, fell three storeys after he jumped out of her window.
The 28-year-old man suffered injuries on his face and was rushed to Penang Hospital for treatment.
The man had broken into the woman’s home on the third floor of a flat at Jalan Mayang Pasir in Bayan Baru early yesterday.
In the 1.30am incident, the woman in her 40s was watching TV in her living room when she felt someone touching her buttocks.
Panicked, she screamed. Upon realising that the woman’s younger brother was also at home, the suspected molester then jumped out of a window and fell three storeys down.
He landed on a cement floor below but suffered only facial injuries.
Balik Pulau OCPD Supt Lai Fah Hin said the suspect would be investigated under Section 453 of the Penal Code for breaking in and under Section 354 of the Penal Code for using criminal force with intent to outrage modesty.
In a separate case, two Ukrainian backpackers were beaten up and robbed by three men while sleeping in a tent they had pitched at a beach in Teluk Bahang near here.
The couple’s bags, containing their cash, laptops, handphones and personal documents were taken away by the men.
Supt Lai said the three men also assaulted the Ukrainian couple with helmets before leaving the place.
“We are in the process of identifying the three suspects to assist in the investigations,” he said.
