A male artist, who was famous as an artiste during the 80s, was arrested by the police after he was believed to have sexually assaulted a teenage girl since August last year.
Subang Jaya District Police Chief, ACP Abd Khalid Othman, revealed in a statement yesterday (Sunday, 25th July) that his department received a report regarding the incident earlier on 21st July (Wednesday) at 3pm.
“The first incident happened to the 14-year-old victim in August 2020 at her mother’s friend’s condominium in Puchong Prima. The incident involved the 65-year-old suspect known as ‘Atok’ (Grandpa),” the police official stated.
Abd Khalid added that two more incidents of physical sexual assault committed by the suspect against the victim, who was still in Form Two at a secondary school in Puchong, took place in October and November 2020. “Both incidents took place at the suspect’s house in Puchong. This (case) happened again in January. Due to fear, the complainant just kept quiet about it,” he said.
He further revealed that after receiving the report, the suspect was arrested at the USJ 8 Police Station at 11:00 pm on 21st July. However, the suspect has since been released on police bail, as he is reportedly suffering from heart disease. The case is being investigated under Section 14 (a) of the Sexual Offenses Against Children Act 2017.
Although the identity of the suspect remains undisclosed by the authorities, many netizens have started to speculate regarding the culprit (who was also reported to be the father to a famous singer). Based on our checking, the female celeb in question had since limited the amount of replies on their social media, seemingly to avoid from being bombarded by the fans.
