CLAIMING to be tired from cleaning up his house which is constantly flooded, a 21-year-old from Teluk Air Tawar, Penang chooses to live in a messy and dilapidated home, reported Harian Metro.
Muhammad Ammirul Azman lives alone in the house since his grandmother died more than a year ago.
The ceiling of the house has rotted and electricity supply is cut because the wiring system had been damaged.
He said the house would be dirty again after a flood so he did not bother to clean up the clothes in the living room.
“I have nothing to complain about and I do not mind living in this type of conditions,” said the odd job worker.
He added that he did not want to trouble others and that he yearned to get a job with a stable income.
> The paper also reported that a female security guard alleged her Bangladeshi boyfriend raped her more than 10 times in her rented house in Lengkok Abdullah, Bangsar.
She claimed he had visited her between 11pm and 2.30am on May 4.
The man had arrived at the house with four other friends, including an Indonesian woman.
A quarrel ensued when the woman refused to let the group in.
A source familiar with the case told the paper that the boyfriend became enraged.
He then kicked the woman in the abdomen and waist, while choking her.
The woman claimed the boyfriend’s friends also assaulted her.
She was then dragged into the room and raped more than 10 times by the boyfriend.
The source said the woman was too weak to fight back.
She managed to escape at around 5am when the boyfriend and his friends slept after a drinking session.
She called 999 and later lodged a police report.
