Tourist: I molested cop


Kuala Lumpur – A Vietnamese tourist got more than he bargained for when he patted the buttock of a policewoman on New Year’s Day.

Vu Minh Vinh, 44, committed the offence while the 27-year-old police officer was standing in front of an outlet at KLCC in Jalan Ampang at 10pm on Jan 1.

The officer scolded him, showed her identification papers and arrested him.

Vu, of Ngan Son Hai Duong City, admitted to the molest charge at a magistrate’s court here yesterday.

The court set Feb 13 for sentencing. No bail was offered.

In the same court, an Indian national claimed trial to touching the private parts of a 15-year-old girl last month.

Chinnakannu Thavasu, 26, was said to have committed the offence at pedestrian walkway at Jalan Tun Tan Cheng Lock at 8pm on Dec 27. C/Insp D.R. Ghanthi Nathan did not offer bail for him.

The magistrate set Jan 25 for mention.
