PETALING JAYA: Police are reported to have rescued a 16-year-old Sarawakian girl from a flat in Kuala Lumpur where she was said to have been repeatedly forced by her father to have sex with him over several weeks.
The girl, from Lundu, had come to Kuala Lumpur in August to further her studies and lived with her father in a flat in the Chow Kit area.
The man, aged 38, who sold religious books for a living, was said to have hit her with a hammer, throttled her and threatened her with a knife when forcing her to have sex with him.
The girl, from Lundu, had intended to further her studies in Kuala Lumpur. On the night she arrived, the man forced himself on her and subsequently raped her repeatedly over the next three weeks, according to a report in the Malay Mail newspaper.
The report, quoting police sources, said the girl worked at a nearby wholesale shop just steps away from the Chow Kit police station.
A neighbour had alerted the girl’s mother after hearing her cries, and she lodged a police report in Lundu on Sept 8, believing that she had been assaulted.
Police entered the flat through the shophouse airwell and broke into the room.
The report said Kuala Lumpur CID chief Rusdi Mohd Isa confirmed the incident.
