PETALING JAYA, Dec 13 — A policeman was arrested after an Indonesian worker alleged that she was raped by him at a budget hotel in Kajang on Tuesday night.
The lance corporal was said to have to have detained the woman, in her late 20s, during a raid at her house in Bandar Baru Bangi.
Her husband and their housemate were released after they produced identification papers but the woman failed to do so.
The policeman then arrested her and took her to a nearby police station.
There the woman claimed the policeman tried to solicit sex from her by threatening to put her in a lock-up if she did not give in to his demands.
In fear, the woman relented and was taken to a budget hotel where she claimed she was raped.
She lodged a police report at a different district police headquarters on Wednesday.
The policeman, in his mid-20s, was arrested the same day. He had been with the force for seven years and is married with two children.
Police are checking if he had any disciplinary problems.
Kajang police chief ACP Ab Rashid Ab Wahab said police were investigating the allegation made by the woman and refused further comment.
