PETALING JAYA: The diplomatic aide who allegedly sexually assaulted a 21-year-old woman in New Zealand appears to be a happy family man.

According to the Facebook Profile of his wife, Mohammed Rizalman Bin Ismail (pic), 38,  has three children, two of which are enrolled in primary schools while the other is a toddler.

The wife, who is from Terengganu, is a nurse. She is formerly a student at College of Nursing in Kuala Lumpur.

Their profile showed that they had moved to Wellington in October last year.

The wife seems like a simple housewife who loves her children as her Facebook profile was filled with pictures of them.

On Mohammed Rizalman's Facebook profile, he appears to be a happily-married family man.

Based on his limited profile access, the suspect posted many family pictures. He also supports Malaysian Super League side ATM FA. 

He apparently followed the young woman back to her home in Brooklyn on the night of May 9 and is alleged to have assaulted her with the intent to rape.

Some reports have also linked him to a burglary case.

Each of the offences carries a maximum of 10 years in prison.

He has returned to Malaysia. However, New Zealand authorities have asked him to return to face charges.
