PETALING JAYA: A 39-year-old man who posed as a doctor has been arrested for allegedly making lewd phone calls to female victims.
Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Fadzil Ahmat said police had received 21 reports linked to the suspect.
An arrest was made on June 9 at a hotel in Klang, following investigations into three reports lodged with Selangor police in June.
The police are still investigating how the suspect managed to get the contact numbers of the victims who had earlier undergone pre-marital health checks at various medical institutions.
"All victims had been contacted by phone, with the suspect posing as a doctor relaying to them their 'results', telling them that they showed signs of breast cancer, etc," he said in a statement on Wednesday (July 10).
SAC Fadzil explained that during the phone conversation, the "doctor" would instruct his victims to perform acts such as lying on their sides, touching their private areas and making lewd noises.
"The suspect had two previous records for gang robbery and causing hurt with a weapon.
"We have also seized a handphone, believed to have been used to contact the victims," he added.
