According to Malaysian newspaper The Malay Mail Online, a 16 year-old Sarawakian’s wish to further her studies in the capital turned into a nightmare as she was raped and assaulted by her father.
On the day she arrived at her father’s rented unit in a shophouse at Chow Kit, her father allegedly forced her to perform oral sex on him before raping her even as she struggled to break free.
Even though she lived just steps away from the Chow Kit police station, she was too scared to reach out for help.
The girl’s ordeal continued for the next three weeks where her father not only continued to rape her.
In addition, her father also “hit her with a hammer, strangled her and threatened her with a knife to ensure she would not speak to anyone” according to the Malaysian Police.
It was only until a neighbour alerted the girl’s mother after hearing her cries that a police report was lodged in Sarawak.
Police has arrested her father but he is understood to be let off today.
