KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA: A suspect whose crime spree spanned more than 10 years, and included murder, rape, extortion, theft and fights has been arrested.
City CID chief Senior Asst Comm (II) Datuk Ku Chin Wah said the 41-year-old man, high on the police wanted list was arrested together with two men aged 32 and 45.
They were arrested following a breakthrough in investigations into the murder of a 35-year-old man who was beaten to death by at least three people near a Dangdut centre along Jalan Ipoh last February.
"Upon questioning, two of the suspects admitted to raping two 14-year-old twins in 2007.
"Our investigations revealed that the twins had run away from home and were led to a house in Chow Kit by three men who locked them in a house and raped them repeatedly over a period of time," he said.
SAC Ku said one of the suspects involved in the rape had a previous conviction and returned to his old ways after teaming up with the other two men who were arrested recently.
He said upon questioning the 41-year-old leader of the gang, police found that the hardened criminal had during the past 10 years allegedly been involved in the rape of a girl in 1999, as well as car-jacking, fights and extortion.
