KUANTAN: A 17-year-old shop assistant has claimed that her employer raped her in his house in Raub on Monday.
According to state CID chief Asst Comm T. Narenasegaran, the victim believed that the employer was sincere in wanting to send her back to her hostel after the shop, located in Simpang Kallang, closed at about 11.45pm.
“However, on the way back, the employer made a detour and went to his house at Taman Amelina Letsari instead. He then raped her in the house,” ACP Narenasegaran said yesterday.
The suspect, 33, was arrested after the victim lodged a report the next day, he added.
In an unrelated incident, a 20-year-old man was detained in a shop selling handphones in Kempadang here on Wednesday in connection with illegal gambling activities.
ACP Narenasegaran said the youth was arrested in a raid following a tip-off.
