Latest police investigation revealed that there were no closed circuit television (CCTV) cameras in the vicinity of a purported sex crime incident involving a DAP assemblyman’s aide. Northeast District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner Anuar Omar said that there were only cameras inside the entertainment outlet at Lebuh Pantai and none were found at the parking lot where a sexual assault allegedly took place.
“Our investigation officer has yet to retrieve the footage; however he has looked at it.
“There were only footages inside the premise showing both the suspect and the victim walking together. None covered the parking area,” he said in a press statement today.
It was her first day at work as a part-time waitress and the last thing the accounting diploma student wanted to do was to “offend” a customer.
The 21-year-old, who only wanted to be known as Tan, agreed to accompany a customer, whom she identified as a DAP assemblyman’s aide, to his parked car when he was leaving the outlet.
It was a decision she would later regret.
She claimed that as they walked along a dark passageway to the car, the man suddenly pushed her against the wall.
“He kissed me and tried to put his tongue into my mouth. I tried to push him away but he was so big.
“He shoved his left hand into my shorts and touched my private parts. I got scared, squatted down and cried,” she said of the July 6 incident yesterday.
Tan was working at an entertainment outlet in Lebuh Pantai while waiting for her final year exam results. She claimed the man then pulled out his private parts and asked her for oral sex and when she refused, he asked her to use her hands instead.
“Then he pulled me up and continued kissing me even as I tried to push him away,” she said, adding that the man then masturbated and ejaculated on her.
Tan was accompanied by her father and boyfriend to the press conference at the Parti Cinta Malaysia office in Air Itam yesterday.
Also present was PCM vice-president Datuk Huan Cheng Guan.
Tan, who wore a white, long-sleeved shirt buttoned to her neck, a black cap with her face concealed behind a mask that left only her eyes visible, gripped her hands tightly as she spoke, sometimes in a choked voice.
She also showed reporters the shorts she claimed she wore that night, which had a white stain on it.
She said she lodged a police report on the incident after midnight on July 7 and a second report on July 11, with more details, including security camera footage from that passageway where she was allegedly assaulted. She said she came forward to tell her story so that other women would not have to suffer the same experience.
