KUALA LUMPUR: Instead of the usual red paint tactic, a loan shark has allegedly taken to breaking into a house and showing off his "artistic flair" by drawing on a housewife's bra and sketching on the wall.

A 29-year-old woman, who only wanted to be known as Yong, left home with her husband and six-year-old child on May 12 for two days to hide from the Ah Long. When she returned, she found her house broken into and the intruder had poured shampoo, detergent and sauce all over the floor and furniture and her inner garments and clothing scattered everywhere.

"Two bras, which had big black dots drawn in the middle of each cup, were hung on the window panel," she told a press conference yesterday at the MCA Public Services and Complaints Department. There was also a sketch resembling a man on her living room wall.

Yong also said home appliances including two television sets , DVD players, fans, a gold chain, RM100 (S$43.23) and her husband's passport were missing from the house.

Yong of Sungai Besi, said her carpenter husband took a RM3,000 loan on May 5 to settle his car instalments that had been due for four months.

"We only received RM1,500 and have to pay back a total of RM3,300 in two instalments," she added.

A week later, Yong's husband, also 29, could not settle the first instalment of RM1,800 and was told that a day's interest would be RM1,200.

The interest doubled each day and by May 12, his loan had gone up to RM20,000 causing the family to flee.

Department head Datuk Michael Chong said Cheras acting OCPD Supt Abdul Rahim Hamzah Othman has promised to look into the matter.
