KOTA KINABALU - A notorious burglar, known as "Man Parang," was caught hours after he forced two women victims to perform oral sex on him during a break-in at their house in Taman Seri Kepayan here.
The 31-year-old suspect, who is out on bail after being charged with 12 counts of rape, robbery and house break-ins in Selangor, was nabbed at a petrol kiosk in Menggatal at about 7.30pm on Tuesday.
Earlier at 4.30am, Man Parang had broken into the house of two students, both 25, and forced them to perform oral sex on him with a parang placed at their necks.
Police chief Asst Comm M. Chandra told a press conference Friday that the suspect threatened his victims with a parang before relieving them of their valuables. In some cases, the victims were forced to perform oral sex on him.
He said the suspect, who is on a RM70,000 (S$27,666.50) bail granted by a court in Selangor, had returned to Sabah on Aug 14 purportedly to attend his "uncle's funeral."
Police believed he carried on burglarising homes in Taman Putrajaya, Taman Bukit Sepanggar and Taman Kingfisher for three days.
Police recovered a parang, house-breaking tools and stolen handphones when he was arrested. They also seized the car he was using.
Police investigations revealed that Man Parang was first convicted for break-in in 2004 and was wanted for three others in Tawau and Kota Kinabalu in 2013.
