Two young boys lured a nine-year-old girl to a deserted alley in Ampang and took turns to rape her.
The alleged rapists, aged 10 and 14, had earlier followed her from a nearby shopping mall to a restaurant but she did not suspect they would harm her because she knew them.
Adding insult to the girl's injury, the mother of one of the boys slapped the girl's mother when she confronted the suspect's family over the 10pm assault on Tuesday.
A police source told Harian Metro the victim had left her mother's stall at the mall for a while to go to a washroom at the nearby restaurant.
Ampang Jaya police chief Asst Comm Amiruddin Jamaluddin confirmed receiving the report from the victim's mother.
