SEREMBAN: Police have confirmed receiving a report from a woman against an alleged paedophile for sexual harassment on her 10-year-old son.
Nilai police chief Supt Zaldino Zaludin said the complainant was at home in Jalan Putra Nilai at 6.30pm on Monday when her son told her that a man he had befriended was sending him “sexual” messages.
“According to the 29-year-old complainant, the conversations between the suspect and her son had been normal until three days ago when the former started sending the sexual messages.
“After calling but failing to get any response from the man through Facebook messenger, she posted a warning not to disturb her son again. Instead, he blocked the complainant and her husband’s Facebook accounts,” said Supt Zaldino in a statement yesterday.
He said based on initial investigations, the suspect and victim got to know each other in February through Facebook messenger.
“The suspect had also invited the victim to meet him on the pretext of presenting him with a PlayStation Portable to keep him from boredom at home.
“I was informed by the complainant that the suspect’s Facebook account, allegedly under the name of ‘Aiman Fauzi’ had already been closed,” he said.
Supt Zaldino said the case was being investigated under Section 509 and 292 of the Penal Code. — Bernama
