SUBANG JAYA - Police managed to nab a suspected rapist after a jealous 13-year-old girl found out that her boyfriend had had sex with her 11-year-old friend.
She promptly informed her friend's father and also lodged a police report against the 19-year-old boyfriend.
The boyfriend, who works at a budget hotel near here, is now being investigated for raping the 11-year-old girl and for statutory rape of his girlfriend.
OCPD Asst Comm Yahaya Ramli said the suspect knew both the girls well as they lived in the same block in Pangsapuri Angsana, Persiaran Subang Mewah.
He said the girlfriend, who only just started attending secondary school this year, told police that she had been having sex with her boyfriend since December last year.
He said the teenager also told police that the suspect invited her 11-year-old friend to his apartment on Jan 14 and raped her.
Based on the younger girl's account, he said, she had spent the night at his apartment.
The next morning, he again tried to have sex with the girl, but she refused.
ACP Yahaya said the suspect only let the girl out at 8am so she could go to school.
"The suspect told the girl to return to his apartment after school. The girl did as she was told because she was afraid of being scolded by her parents for not coming home the night before.
ACP Yahya said the girlfriend found out about the incident and informed the girlfriend's father about it.
The 11-year-old's father stormed into the suspect's apartment in the evening and took his daughter home before lodging a police report the next day.
"The girlfriend also lodged a report against her boyfriend on Jan 16. We arrested him on the same day," he said.
The two girls had been sent for medical checks.
The suspect is being remanded until Friday and is expected to be charged soon.
