A college student in Kuala Lumpur had a horrific experience when a GrabCar driver assaulted her and tried to force her into having sex with him, reported China Press.

During the 11.45am incident on Monday, the driver picked up the woman from her college in Cheras to drive her back to her hostel.

However, after a couple of minutes, the student realised the driver was not following the correct route and questioned him.

The driver stopped at an isolated place and assaulted the woman on the back seat. Punching and kicking her, the driver tried to strangle the woman and only stopped when another car drove by.

Threatening her, he suggested they have sex in a hotel. The student then asked him to drive her to any hotel in the city.

Once they reached a hotel in Setapak, the woman attacked the driver before escaping. She later sought help from a car workshop nearby and called her father. She subsequently lodged a report.
