Minibus driver nabbed for molesting tourist

14th August, 2019

KOTA KINABALU: A 30- year-old minibus driver was arrested at a shop here near Jalan Sulaman after allegedly molesting a Japanese tourist.

Kota Kinabalu police chief ACP Habibi Majinji said the victim had arrived at the city on Sunday and opted in taking the bus to see the Likas mosque in the 2pm incident.

“When she was done the bus driver who waited for her had urged her to hop into the front passenger seat.

“As they neared Bukit Bendera the victim noticed the suspect was touching his private parts saying he fancied her before attempting a hug.

“She recoiled in disgust but the man persisted and groped her breasts and privates.

“He stopped the van at a roadside and continued to molest her while she cried in pain.

“The suspect later dropped the woman off at Jalan Dewan before she sought the help of others in lodging a police report,” Habibi said.

The 40-year-old woman’s travel experience which took a sickening turn saw an ounce of justice when the man was arrested at 10.30pm on the very same day.

“The suspect is now in lock-up and being investigated under Section 354 of the Penal Code for using criminal force with intent to outrage modesty. – By Jonathan Nicholas
