JOHOR BARU: A peeping Tom was caught hiding in a women's restroom at a shopping complex in the city centre here.
Johor Baru South OCPD Asst Comm Sulaiman Salleh said the man, in his 20s, was spotted by a credit company employee, who then called a female colleague to check the loo.
"The suspect, who was found hiding in the toilet, was caught by workers and shoppers.
"Police have detained the man," he said in a statement here on Wednesday.
A social media post on the incident went viral after it was claimed that the perpetrator was a Singaporean and reeked of alcohol when he was caught.
However, ACP Sulaiman would not confirm the claims, stressing that investigations are ongoing.
