PETALING JAYA: A security guard, who had come to the district police headquarters here saying he wanted to lodge a report, was later found hanged with a water hose in the ground floor toilet of the station.
Deputy OCPD (PJ Utara) Asst Comm Osman Abu Bakar said the man, who has been identified as R. Magesvaran, 29, had gone to the enquiry office at 4.30pm yesterday and told a policeman on duty that he wanted to lodge a report.
However, he said the man did not do so and later left the place.
At 10.30pm, a canteen worker who went to the toilet suspected something amiss when he found the door to one of the cubicles locked and a hose hanging from a piece of wood on the roof.
He climbed up and peeped inside the cubicle and saw the man hanged with the water hose, he added.
He said a policeman broke down the door and attempted to resuscitate the man but failed.
ACP Osman, who said the police had classified the case as sudden death, would contact the man's next-of-kin.
In an unrelated incident, a 33-year-old cashier, who used a pepper spray to try and fight off two robbers, was instead overpowered and had her blouse torn off by the men at a pedestrian bridge in Bandar Sunway here.
The victim screamed hysterically after the robbers fled the scene on Wednesday. A woman passer-by came to her aid and gave her an overcoat to cover herself. She then accompanied the cashier to her home nearby.
It is learnt the victim was walking home alone at 9.50pm after work, when two men approached her at the pedestrian bridge near Sunway Mentari.
One of the men gripped her around the neck while the other told her to hand over her cash and valuables.
The victim then took out a pepper spray from her paper bag and sprayed it at the robbers, who managed to evade it.
The angry robbers then pushed her to the side before tearing off her blouse. They then fled with the paper bag containing some cash and a cellular phone.
The victim, who had bruises on her hands and body, was then taken by her family members to the Subang Jaya police station, where she lodged a report. She was later sent to University Malaya Medical Centre for a check-up.
Those with information on the two robbers are urged to contact the PJ Selatan police headquarters at 03-8948 4822.
