KUALA LUMPUR: An outing for a Form Four student who befriended several youths at a shopping mall in Jalan Sultan Ismail here turned into a nightmare when she was gang-raped at the roof parking lot of the complex several days ago.
The girl, who tried to fight off her attackers, was raped by at least three youths at the deserted parking lot at 4.30pm.
No one heard her cries for help as the youths, all in their teens, took turns to pin her down and acted as look-outs to alert the others if anyone was near.
After raping her, they threaten to hurt her if she screamed for help and “escorted” her out of the complex as if nothing had happened.
However, one of the rapists had a “change of heart” and decided to send the girl home instead. The other two fled.
Two policemen on crime prevention rounds stopped both the youth and the victim when they noticed that the girl was in tears.
The youth was detained at an LRT station in the city.
Initial investigations showed that the girl, from Batu Caves, came to the shopping complex with a female friend for window-shopping.
At the complex, the girls met an old friend who introduced them to more than a dozen men.
The girls later split up with the victim following her attackers.
The youths took the girl to the car park located on the third floor and started molesting her.
After the youth's arrest, the girl, the youngest of five siblings, was sent to the KL Hospital for a medical check-up.
In an unrelated case, a 13-year-old girl, who asked her friend to take her to pay some utility bills, was instead taken to a room in Chow Kit and repeatedly raped for two days.
The 21-year-old man was arrested in the Keramat area here soon after the girl lodged a police report.
City Deputy CID Chief Asst Comm Syed Ismail Syed Azizan confirmed both cases and urged those with information to call the city serious crimes unit at 03- 21460522 or the nearest police station.
