KUALA LUMPUR: City police are expected to hand over an alleged serial rapist who offered lucrative jobs via a website and later raped and robbed his victims during interviews, to their Selangor counterpart today.KL CID chief Datuk Ku Chin Wah said the transfer was to facilitate investigations into at least two similar cases in the state.
"On our part, we will submit the investigation papers to the deputy public prosecutor's office for the next course of action," he said.
The 27-year-old suspect, a watch salesman, was picked up last Thursday at his house in Section 27, Shah Alam, seven days after police released his photo-fit based on descriptions given by his two alleged victims.
It was reported that police had linked him to at least five cases since 2010. Three of the cases occured in Kuala Lumpur while the other two were in Ampang, Selangor.
It was also reported that initial investigation showed the suspect would post an adverstisement for product promoters at RM400 per day.
When a job-seeker takes the bait and contacts him via email, the suspect would then arrange for an interview at a budget hotel.
To cover his tracks, the suspect would ask his victim to register her name for the room. He would then take the victim to the room on the pretext of signing some paperwork.
Once inside, he would rape the victim, take her belongings and flee.
