ALOR SETAR: A 39-year-old man was given a severe beating by a crowd after he was found secretly filming up a woman’s skirt using a small digital device.
Kota Setar district police chief ACP Mohd Rozi Jidin said the incident occurred at 9.30am at the farmers’ market in Jalan Langgar here, where the victim was buying kuih at one of the stalls.
“The victim was unaware of the suspect’s action when he put his foot underneath her skirt near a stall until she was notified by the public.
“People who saw the incident started to beat up the suspect after they found a small digital camera attached to his shoelaces that could record video and was directly connected to his iPhone 6,” he said in a statement today.
The victim, 38, who lived in Jitra, explained that she didn’t know the suspect and decided to lodge a police report.
The suspect, who works as an operations assistant, was detained for further investigation.
