ALOR SETAR, April 9 — 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 camera.
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’ (Malay cakes) at one of the stalls.
“The victim was unaware of the suspect’s immoral act as he put his foot underneath the victim’s skirt near a stall until she was notified by the public.
“People who saw the incident started to beat up the suspect when they found there was a small digital camera attached to his shoelaces that can record a video and it 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 and is being investigated under Sections 294 and 509 of the Penal Code. — Bernama
