SUNGAI PETANI: A 30-year-old lorry driver has been arrested for allegedly raping his friend’s mother who is more than twice his age.
The suspect was picked up at Gurun town on Tuesday, two days after he allegedly raped the 69-year-old dish washer in the jungle at Batu 4 in Gurun, near here.
Police on Wednesday obtained a seven-day remand order from the Sungai Petani magistrate’s court to detain him until next Tuesday to facilitate investigations.
Kuala Muda district deputy police chief Supt Ong Aik Chang said the suspect had gone to the victim’s house in a village in Gurun on Sunday night to look for her son who was not at home. He said the victim then asked the suspect for a lift on his motorcycle to look for her son but he took her to a jungle instead where he allegedly raped her.
