A MIDNIGHT raid by the Anti-Vice, Gambling and Secret Society Division (D7) from Bukit Aman on an entertainment centre in Petaling Jaya has led to the arrest of 40 pole dancers.

Berita Harian quoted Asst Supt Mohammad Md Jais as saying that the dancers would offer sexual services to patrons at additional charges.

“Their fee ranged between RM50 and RM1,000,” he said, adding that a dancer’s fee was indicated by the colour of the sash that she wore.

ASP Mohammad, who led the raid, said the pole dancing performances and “extra” services were only offered on Wednesdays to avoid police detection.

During the raid, there were about 60 customers at the premises, he said.

Most of the pole dancers were Thai nationals.

The manager of the entertainment centre has also been detained.

> A retired teacher was injured on his arms and head when he tried to fight off a masked robber at his house in Yong Peng, Johor.

Berita Harian reported that Mohd Fadhil Sayuti, 73, was hacked by a sharp object when he went to his wife’s aid.

“He rushed to the backyard when he heard my mother screaming,” said their daughter Hajarul Aisyah, 26.

Her father was in the kitchen when the robber entered the house, she said.

Fortunately, her mother managed to alert the neighbours, but the robber fled with her necklace and a bracelet.

Batu Pahat district police chief Asst Comm Din Ahmad said the police were now tracking down the suspect.
