MUAR: A teenager nicknamed Mat Tetek who went around harassing women by squeezing their breasts and even flashing his private parts has been arrested.
The 17-year-old youth, who came from Kluang to live with his elder sister in Kampung Parit Yusof here, was detained after police tracked the motorcycle he used to terrorise his victims.
Muar police chief Asst Comm Mohammed Nasir Ramli said the youth first molested a 22-year-old woman motorcyclist near a petrol kiosk in Parit Jawa on Wednesday.
He said the youth approached the woman and when she slowed down, he touched her breasts and sped off when she shouted.
The woman managed to note down the motorcycle registration number and passed the information to the police.
“On Thursday, the youth terrorised four more women, including one near a bus stop by squeezing their breasts,” ACP Mohammed Nasir told reporters here yesterday.
He said the youth even flashed his private parts at a 49-year-old woman at about 7.15am.
He said the youth also snatched a handbag from one of the victims, adding that police detained him at his sister’s house at about 8.50pm on Thursday.
