KUALA LUMPUR: A Bangladeshi man was beaten to a bloody pulp by an angry mob after he was caught raping a teenage girl in a cybercafe toilet at Sri Rampai, Setapak.
He was handed to the police drenched in his own blood and with bruises on the head, face and legs.
He is being remanded for a week for a rape investigation.
Police said the 13-year-old girl was accompanying her father to the cybercafe in Rampai Business Park at about 10.30pm on Thursday.
Her father engrossed himself in a video game while her daughter waited next to him, said sources.
It was then that the Bangladeshi suspect, who was also in the cyber cafe, invited the teen to enter the toilet with him.
“The victim followed him there and while in the toilet, she was molested and raped by the suspect,” said KL CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Zainuddin Ahmad.
As the 30-year-old man raped the girl, he threatened her not to make a sound.
Luckily, her father noticed that his daughter was missing and went looking for her. He knocked on the toilet door and found his daughter being sexually assaulted.
“The suspect was beaten up by the father and customers in the cyber cafe. Police were called and we arrested the man. An ambulance also had to come to provide treatment for the man,” he said.
He added that the man did not have any identification on him.
The case has been referred to the KL Sexual Crimes, Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Investigations Division (D11).
