A 40-year-old man attempted to record the action of a woman bathing failed when the victim realised the existence of a mobile phone on recording mode on the window of her bathroom at her condominium in Petaling Jaya.
According to The Rakyat Post, the incident occurred on Sunday (1st November 2015) at about 12am. As soon as the victim took the phone and realised she was being recorded by the suspect, she screamed, forcing the suspect, who initially tried to retrieve the phone, to flee the scene.
Petaling Jaya police chief Assistant Commissioner Zaini Che Din said the suspect was found and arrested the following day at his home in Section 12, based on an image of his identity card found on the mobile phone.
However, the suspect claimed that he had lost his phone at the scene while visiting his friend who also stayed at the condominium, but he did not lodge a police report about the loss.
The suspect was remanded for four days from today, and the evidence has been seized and sent to the forensics department for analysis.
