9 half-naked male masseuses climbed on rooftop to escape police

MALAYSIA - Nine men, several without a thread on their body while others were only partially dressed, ran helter-skelter when anti-vice officers raided a joint in Johor Baru said to specialise in massage services for gays, Berita Harian reported.

The men, said to be masseuses from China, Vietnam and Myanmar and aged 27 to 32, scurried to the rooftops to escape the enforcers but their attempt was futile.

They had allegedly no time to put on their clothes when a lookout at the place in Century Garden warned them of the Immigration officers approaching the joint. The detainees were later held for questioning at the Pekan Nenas immigration depot.

It was believed to be the third raid at the joint in the past two years.
