KUALA LUMPUR - A 14-year-old boy, who took up an offer to study self-defence for free, went through an agonising three months under his so-called martial arts instructor who sodomised him on several occasion.
The teenager endured the trauma silently and only when his anus started bleeding that he confessed to his parents that he had been sodomised.
Apparently, the suspect in his 20s had also sexually abused five other students, two of whom attend the same school in Kepong as the victim.
The boy's mother related the nightmare that her son went through at a press conference called by Taman Selayang Jaya MCA branch chairman Jessie Ooi at Wisma MCA here yesterday.
She said her son's ordeal started some time in August when the man met the boy outside his school and offered to give self-defence lessons for free.
Instead of the lessons, he took the teenager, who is a diabetic, to an apartment in nearby Desa Aman Puri and sodomised him.
He repeated his act at another apartment unit in Kepong in early September.
Fearing for his safety, the boy kept mum about the two incidents.
"The man threatened to harm my son if he ever told us or the police about the attacks," his 53-year-old mother said, adding that her son was sodomised one more time at an apartment near a hypermarket in Kepong on Oct 22. This time the assault tore his anus.
"It was only after his anus bled in the bathroom that he finally confided in us," she said, adding that she and her husband lodged a report at the Selayang police station the same day.
She said her son stopped going to school three weeks ago as he was terrified of bumping into the man.
Gombak OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Rahim Abdullah said police were investigating the case.
