KLANG: A factory worker has been arrested for attempting to sexually assault a child here.
North Klang OCPD Asst Comm Nurulhuda Salleh said the incident occurred around 2pm on Wednesday (Feb 19) at a flat at Bandar Sultan Sulaiman.
"We received a report from a 40-year-old woman, who works as a cleaner.
"She claimed that her eight-year-old daughter was on her way back home after buying a drink when the child was ambushed by a man," ACP Nurulhuda said when contacted on Thursday (Feb 21).
