ISKANDAR PUTERI: The promise of a modelling job lured a young woman and her boyfriend to drive more than 300km from Kuala Lumpur to here.
However, instead of becoming a model, she was molested and robbed of more than RM60,000.
Iskandar Puteri OCPD Asst Comm Dzulkhairi Mukhtar said the 23-year-old victim, who works as a shop assistant and her 20-year-old salesman boyfriend, befriended a man on Facebook who then offered her a part-time modelling job worth around RM3,000 in Johor Baru.
"On Dec 23, the duo arrived in Johor where they picked up the suspect in Pontian around 12.30pm and headed towards Lima Kedai in Gelang Patah.
"When they arrived at a dead-end road somewhere in Lima Kedai about one hour later, the suspect took out a parang and placed it at the boyfriend's neck," he said in a statement here Tuesday (Dec 24).
ACP Dzulkhairi added that the suspect then dragged the boyfriend out from the car and forced him into the car trunk.
"The suspect then sat at the driver's seat where he forced the woman to perform oral sex on him, and also put his fingers inside the victim's private parts.
"The suspect also recorded his disgusting act on his cellphone where he warned the girl he will viral it if she lodges a police report," he added.
ACP Dzulkhairi said that the suspect then drove the car to an oil palm plantation in Pontian and left both victims at the side of the road.
He added that the suspect stole the black Perodua Myvi, which belongs to the victims' friend, personal belongings such as cellphones, bank cards, and cash amounting to RM60,000.
He said the case was being investigated under Section 392/397 of the Penal Code for robbery, Section 377 of the Penal Code for unnatural sex, and Section 354 of the Penal Code for assault or use of criminal force on a person with the intent to outrage modesty.
ACP Dzulkhairi urged those with information relating to the case, to immediately contact Johor police hotline at 07-2212999 or the nearest police station.
