KUALA TERENGGANU: Angry villagers in Kampung Pulau Bahagia, Manir, caught and tied a Peeping tom to an electric pole before handing him over to the police.
The store manager of a hypermarket was naked when he was caught spying on a 23-year-old woman at about 1.15am here yesterday.
Her father, who is a factory operator, and brother found the 29-year-old perched on the wooden stairs at the back of their house.
They shouted at the suspect who promptly bolted. The duo chased him for about 200m before apprehending him with the help of other villagers.
With only a T-shirt covering his private parts, the manager was tied to the pole before he was handed over to Manir policemen.
Terengganu CID chief Asst Comm K. Manoharan said the suspect had hidden his motorcycle and clothing some 300m from the victim’s home.
“We are not ruling out the possibility that the suspect was also trying to break into the house,” he said.
“He has a prior record for breaking into houses and also tested positive for methamphetamine.” - theStarOnline
