PETALING JAYA: Ten foreign women were detained for providing sex and massages from a house in Bandar Damansara Perdana.

Acting on a tip-off, police raided the house around 2.30pm on Tuesday (Dec 8).

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal (pic) said the 10 detained women were aged 25 to 47.

"We believe they were providing sex and massage services for their clients.

"They were placed in individual rooms, where they catered to their clients," he said when contacted Wednesday (Dec 9).

All the women did not have proper personal and travel documents, he added.

"They charged RM80 for massages and RM180 for sex.

"We believe they targeted foreign customers," he said, adding that 18 condoms were also seized.

ACP Nik Ezanee said the suspects have been remanded for 14 days.

"We hope the public can continue to relay information on any criminal activity in the district," he said.

On another matter, ACP Nik Ezanee said 74 investigation papers have been opened on mule accounts used by scammers between January and October.

"Syndicates would fool the mule account holders into surrendering their ATM cards and PINs.

"Some are even paid between RM200 and RM2,000 for each transaction," he added.

ACP Nik Ezanee urged the public to lodge a police report as soon as possible if they lose any personal documents.

"It is to prevent the scammers from using their personal information, including bank account details," he added.
