PETALING JAYA: An eight-year-old girl was raped when she went to the toilet during a wedding reception on Saturday night.
Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Adnan Abdullah said the girl had accompanied her elder sister and brother-in-law for the wedding, which was held at a school in Sekinchan.
At about 9pm, she told her relatives that she needed to relieve herself.
Her brother-in-law escorted her to the toilet and waited outside for about 15 minutes.
When the brother-in-law asked her what was taking her so long, she replied that she wasn't finished yet.
“He then went to wait at the school canteen about 10m away from the toilet.
“Moments later, he heard a scream and rushed to the toilet.
“He then saw a naked man running out,” SAC Adnan said at the Petaling Jaya district police headquarters yesterday.
SAC Adnan said the brother-in-law managed to catch the man with the help of some wedding guests before rushing the girl to the Klang Hospital for treatment.
The man, in his 20's, had two previous convictions for robbery.
He will be remanded for five days.
SAC Adnan said the girl was traumatised by the incident. - theStarOnline
