EAT all you can and then have sex for “dessert”. This was the gimmick used by three so-called traditional massage joints in Bandar Sunway before anti-vice officers busted their premises, reported Harian Metro.
It was a tactic copied from spa operators who offer customers a “package deal” that includes free meals before selecting a partner for a sex session.
Acting on a tip-off on Monday, police ambushed the three premises at Dataran Mentari that allegedly operated behind the guise of parlours providing traditional massage services.
Twenty-six people were detained in the raids, including a Vietnamese man and four Malaysians who were employed as caretakers of the premises.
The others were Vietnamese women aged between 18 and 32.
“They are all suspected of being involved in prostitution activities,” Selangor D7 (vice, gambling and secret societies) chief Deputy Supt Abd Ghofar Ahmad said.
> A van driver who gave a thumbs-up sign to another road user almost had his left wrist severed when other motorists attacked him with a parang, apparently taking the sign as an insult.
The incident occurred when the 50-year-old van driver was transporting some workers to a timber camp in Beluru, about 80km from Miri, at around 11.30am on Tuesday, reported Kosmo!.
Suddenly, a car sped past the van, catching the driver off-guard and causing his vehicle to swerve and nearly crash to the side of the road.
However, rather than showing his anger at the reckless motorist, the van driver gave the thumbs-up sign, apparently to signify that he was alright.
Instead, the other motorist took it as an insult – he slowed down his car to allow the van to go on its way and then tailed it.
“On reaching the timber camp, the motorist and a passenger got down and pounced on the van driver with a parang,” a source told the paper.
“The victim’s left wrist was almost chopped off in the attack,” said the source, adding that the assailant and his accomplice fled after the incident.
Miri OCPD Asst Comm Gan Tian Kee said that workers at the timber camp rushed the victim to hospital, where he was reported to be in stable condition.
