PETALING JAYA: A motivational speaker has been arrested following multiple allegations of sexual abuse.

Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed, in a statement on Saturday (Sept 10), said that the police had received four reports on the alleged abuse on Aug 30.

Reports were lodged in Klang, Shah Alam and Kajang.

"Investigations showed that the suspect, aged in his 40s, had known all four victims during motivational programmes in Selangor.
