A MAN was expecting a sexual romp with a woman he had just befriended through a messaging app but ended up being beaten up and robbed, Oriental Daily reported.
The 22-year-old man was assaulted on his first date with the woman, who is in her 20s.
When he arrived at the woman’s apartment unit in Kajang, she asked him to take a bath first.
But before long, a group of men stormed into the unit, accused him of raping the woman and started beating him up.
The man told police that the group took photos and a video of him in the nude and threatened to upload them on social media if he failed to pay them RM40,000.
The attackers sent a photo of him tied up and a video clip of him being bashed up to his friend before asking for the money.
They later released the man after taking all his valuables worth about RM8,000.
His friend lodged a police report at 6.15pm on Sunday.
Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Ahmad Dzaffir Mohd Yussoff said police had detained five suspects, including a woman, aged between 20 and 25, in Serdang on Monday.
