Two rape incidents in Johor Baru, just six hours apart

By FARIK ZOLKEPLI

JOHOR BARU: A schoolgirl was raped by four men and another by a bogus policeman in two separate incidents within a six-hour period.

In the first incident, a 16-year-old schoolgirl who had quarrelled with her boyfriend went to calm her feelings at a lake in Taman Tasik Dahlia, Pasir Gudang, at about 12.30am here yesterday.

Four men on motorcycles turned up, started harassing her and forced her on to one of the motorcycles.

They then took her to a secluded area near some factories in Tanjung Langsat and took turns to rape her.

After that, they dropped her off at the lake and fled.

The victim flagged down a taxi to get home and later lodged a police report.

A police source said they are looking for the men aged between 20 and 30.

In the second incident, a 14-year-old schoolgirl and her 13-year-old brother were waiting for the school bus in Tampoi at 6.30am yesterday when a man drove up to them and identified himself as a policeman.

He told them to get into his car and demanded their MyKads.

When they could not produce the cards, the man took the siblings back to their house in Taman Johor.

However, when the girls brother went inside to get the identification cards, he sped off with the girl.

The man took the girl to a secluded area in Technology Park in Senai and raped her and left.

The girl managed to hail passers-by who took her home.

She lodged a report at the Tampoi police station at 9.30am, and was sent to Sultanah Aminah Hospital for a medical check-up.

Police urged anyone with information on both cases to contact the police hotline at 07-221-2999 or the nearest police station.

Serious crime appears to be on the upswing.

On June 12, three men raped a 19-year-old girl and forced her 22-year-old boyfriend to watch.

The following day, a group of armed men took a couple on a terror ride before raping the 35-year-old woman in the presence of her friend, who was slashed.

On Monday, an unemployed man and his seven-month pregnant wife were found murdered in their home in Taman Desa Anggerik in Seremban.

Cabinet orders crackdown on crime in Johor Baru

KUALA LUMPUR: Four hundred more cops in the streets, RM6mil for three new temporary district police headquarters and 200 more police vehicles for patrolling these are among the measures approved by the Cabinet yesterday to clean up Johor Baru after the recent spate of violent crimes there.

With these immediate steps, we hope to allay concerns and increase public confidence, said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, who chaired the Cabinet meeting yesterday.

Najib, who is also Defence Minister, has assumed the additional task of Internal Security Minister in the absence of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who is in Russia.

The three district police centres will be set up in shophouses at Seri Alam, Nusa Jaya and Kulai and 400 policemen from the General Operations Force and the Federal Reserve Unit will be deployed there.

The Cabinets decision appeared all the more timely with two more rapes reported in Johor Baru yesterday.

Always been on my mind - but now after reading so many incidents (and possibly more unreported) - Johor Bahru is now officially a HellHole.

I agree… really unforgivable… Hopefully other states don’t go the same path… :x I can’t say that Miri is a very very safe place but…
