Molester grabs grandmother instead of granddaughter
OOPS! A man entered a bathroom outside a house in Kulim and grabbed the woman in there only to realise that he had embraced a 70-year-old woman.
The molester had actually planned to attack the woman's granddaughter, Sinar Harian reported.
In her police report on the 6.30am incident in Kulim on Saturday, the grandmother said the man kissed her repeatedly and tried to remove her clothing.
He then whispered to her, “Tak kerja ka? (Are you not working?)”, to which she replied in a frightened manner that she had not been “working” for a long time.
The suspect fled after realising he had made a mistake.
Kulim OCPD Supt Ghuzlan Saleh confirmed the incident.
> The issue of film producers enticing women artistes with juicy roles in exchange for sexual favours has surfaced again.
Several artistes confessed to Metro Ahad that they had become victims of these amorous filmmakers.
Newcomer Elly Sarimah said one drama director asked her directly to have sex with him.
Up-and-coming actress Shakila-wati Khoriri and established actresses Rozita Che Wan and Eja also admitted they had been approached by directors and producers on many occasions for sex.
Eja, whose real name is Siti Shahrizah Saifuddin, the winner of the Best Actress Award at the 24th Malaysia Film Festival, said a VIP once offered her RM10,000 for a night with her.
Seniman president Zed Zaidi said the association had received a lot of complaints about producers and directors asking for sexual favours from women artistes and will deal with the matter accordingly.
