When we go for a holiday, we are often aiming to have a good time. Unfortunately, this Singaporean mother-daughter duo had their trip to Malaysia ruined by a masseur.
The duo had gone to a massage parlour, hoping to relax with a good massage. However, the masseur apparently decided to take advantage of the daughter instead. He reportedly played with her breasts and attempted to insert a finger into her vagina. Needless to say, the incident left them both badly scarred and afraid.
The mother had supposedly reached out to a local internet celebrity for help after the incident. “I am in Kuala Lumpur now, on the way back to Singapore,” she stated. “My eldest daughter (20 years old) (was) literally molested while we (were) having our body massage.”
She added that such an incident had never happened before with other male masseurs. “That idiot played with her nipple, (and) put his lips on her nipple. (He) nearly put his finger (into) her vagina, but she managed to stop (him),” she recalled. The masseur had supposedly tried to tell her “it’s normal to (be massaged) like that“.
The mother stated she was worried about her daughter and how the incident has affected her. “I have made a police report in Malaysia. Not judging their police system, but I swear I have no confidence in them,” she told the local internet celebrity. “I waited close to five hours at the police station yesterday. Should I report (it to) the Singapore police upon returning? Or wait for them?”
According to her, the local police had arrested the masseur on the spot. “But they only held him for a few hours,” she said. Additionally, she claimed the police kept making a joke out of the whole incident. “(They) kept asking my daughter to repeat the whole incident,” she added. “I felt so ashamed.” She was also concerned that the Singaporean police force would not be able to help her.
The internet celebrity apparently hoped to help the two by sharing the incident. However, there have not been further updates on the case. Additionally, the publication China Press has supposedly reached out the police for a statement regarding the incident, but has yet to hear from them.
Update (9th September, 4:00pm):
More details have since been released regarding the incident. It reportedly took place at a massage parlour at Bukit Bintang on 6th September. The massage parlour in question confirmed the incident, adding that the employee had been working there for two to three years. However, although the suspect was released from police custody, he has not come to work as he is still being investigated.
A report was also filed with the Singaporean police as the mother is hoping for justice for her daughter. She denied knowing that her daughter had been served by a male masseur as they had separated for their respective massages. Currently, her daughter is undergoing counselling to help with the trauma. Additionally, Malaysian lawyers have supposedly offered to help the family with the case.
