12-year-old girl saved from sex predator at school

A 12-year-old girl was saved from the clutches of a sex predator at her school by a canteen worker, reported KOSMO!

In the 6.30am incident at a school in Sabak Bernam, the worker saw a man creep up behind the Year Six student and cover her head with a shirt.

"He then hugged her from behind. I screamed as loud as I could. The man got frightened and fled through the back door," said the worker.

The canteen staff said the man, who was dark-skinned, stocky and bare-chested, might have escaped on a motorcycle at the back of the canteen.

Sabak Bernam OCPD Supt Nor Azmi Isa said a search had been mounted for the assailant.

"We are trying to identify him from the closed-circuit televisions (CCTV) of the school," he said.
