MALAYSIA - A worker at a shop selling cooking gas allegedly molested a 13-year-old girl, who was alone at home when he came to make a delivery, China Press reported.
The man delivered the gas to the apartment in Subang Jaya on Monday after the victim's mother, known only as Wang, called the shop to order the gas tank.
The girl called her mother to confirm before allowing the suspect inside the apartment at about noon.
As the girl did not have enough money to pay the man, the mother called a neighbour to deliver the money to her girl. It was at this time that the suspect molested the girl.
He also tried to rape her, but ran off after hearing someone opening the apartment door.
The suspect's employer said the worker went missing after that. A police report has been lodged.
