After robbing a woman of her cash and valuables, a burglar returned to her room and raped her, reported China Press.
The robber ignored her pleas to be spared the sexual assault because she was having her period.
The incident, which happened on Monday at 11.30am, took place at a residence in Taman Bukit Serdang in Seri Kembangan.
The suspect, a Bangladeshi, had entered the house from the ceiling and found some cash in the woman’s room, said Serdang OCPD Asst Comm Megat Mohd Aminuddin Megat Alias.
From another room, he stole some foreign currency and other valuables.
The woman was asleep at that time.
The man then returned to the woman’s room and wanted to tie her up.
Awoken, the woman begged the man not to rape her as she was menstruating.
The man, however, brandished a knife and ordered her to take off her clothes.
“The suspect then fled the scene with two cameras, RM150 cash and some foreign notes.
“He even locked all the entrances to prevent the victim from running out,” he said, adding that the victim later managed to free herself before getting help from her neighbours.
ACP Megat Mohd Aminuddin said the suspect had been arrested.
