A 28-YEAR-OLD woman went through a horrifying four-hour ordeal when she was gang-raped by 10 foreigners. She had earlier been abducted at a bus stop in Puchong Perdana.
Police sources told Harian Metro that the rapists recorded their actions which took place in a nearby flat unit at around 3pm on Saturday.
The suspects, believed to be Myanmar nationals, also threatened to kill the victim if she lodged a report.
They released her at around 7pm and she made a report at the Puchong police station.
The woman said she was waiting at the bus stop when a car stopped near her and two men, one armed with a parang, forced her into the backseat.
“The helpless victim was taken to a nearby flat, where the other suspects were waiting.
“Two men tied her hands and feet and despite her screams for help, the suspects took turns raping her,” the source told the paper.
Subang Jaya deputy OCPD Supt Tan Ah Chua said police picked three men, in their 20s and 30s, on Sunday and were hunting down the other seven.
> A Thai production house is wooing award-winning actor Aaron Aziz to star in an action-packed flick that is due to be filmed next year, reported BH Hip, the entertainment pullout of Berita Harian.
The actor, who is currently busy filming Lari with director Ahmad Idham in Perlis, said the offer came from Thai stunt action director, Nong, who is also on board the current project by Excellent Pictures.
Aaron said while he was interested in the offer, which would launch his international debut, he needed to study the options carefully.
“They are planning to start shooting next year, and I need to check my schedule to ensure it does not clash with my other acting jobs. I have yet to respond. But if fate dictates that I will miss this chance, so be it,” he said.
