PETALING JAYA, Malaysia – A 25-year-old American tourist was robbed and raped by two men after being taken on a 80km terror ride in a taxi.
The woman had gone shopping at a mall on Monday and hailed the taxi when she had finished.
The taxi driver, with a man in the front passenger seat, picked up the woman.
Sources revealed that instead of heading to her intended destination, the victim was robbed before being taken on a 80km ride from Mutiara Damansara to a house in Sungai Pelek, Sepang.
The two abductors then took turns raping the tourist.
It is learnt that the woman freed herself on Tuesday and sought the assistance of passers-by before lodging a police report.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed confirmed that police have received a report.
“We have arrested one man so far and investigations are ongoing. We hope to detain the second suspect soon,” he said.
