KUALA LUMPUR: Police are hot on the heels of a man in his late 20s who allegedly raped a woman before carting away valuables in Taman Kajang Utama here on Saturday.
Kajang police chief Assistant Commissioner Willey Richard said in the 11.30am incident, the suspect aged between 25 and 30 had earlier rang the house’s bell several times before breaking in.
“The victim, who was alone at the time of the incident did not open the door as she did not know the suspect. “About five minutes later, the suspect broke into the house through the roof,” he said.
It is learnt that the suspect had entered the residential area posing as a technician to fix a faulty telephone line. Willey said the man, who was armed with knife had entered the victim’s bedroom, threatened her before tying her hands with a wire.
“The suspect then scoured the house for valuables before going back into the room and raped the victim. “He then fled with cellphone and jewelry including three rings and five necklaces,” said Willey.
In shock, the victim immediately called her cousin and lodged a report at the police station. Based on the victim’s description, police had come up with the photofit of the suspect.
Willey said police were in the midst of tracking down the suspect and those who have information on his whereabout could come forward to the nearest police station. It was believed that the suspect lives near the area based on the last location detected from the stolen phone before it was turned off.
