Couples have sex in Malaysia's supermarket car park

News Desk in Kuala Lumpur/The Star

Kuala Lumpur (The Star/ANN) - A supermarket parking lot in Kota Baru, Malaysia, has turned into a meeting point for couples to have sex during their lunch break, reported Malaysian newspaper Harian Metro.

The couples need only pay 2 ringgit (66 US cents) per entry and they usually arrive in separate vehicles to avoid being spotted by acquaintances before engaging in sexual acts inside their cars in dimly-lit areas of the parking lot.

Supermarket workers could view what was going on through CCTVs installed at strategic spots in the parking lot.

"I have seen couples having sex in their cars," a source said.

The Malay-language daily also reported that an express bus driver in Jasin showed an Indonesian woman a pornographic film before allegedly trying to rape her in the vehicle

The incident, which occurred at 10.45pm on Tuesday, happened when the 38-year-old suspect was driving the bus from Kuala Lumpur to Melaka Sentral but took a detour to an oil palm estate in Jalan Tiang Dua-Bukit Kajang before attempting to rape the woman.

The woman, a masseuse at a reflexology centre, told the man off for playing the clip when she was the last passenger on the bus.

However, the driver ignored her and took off his pants after stopping at a secluded area.

The woman was rescued when two police officers patrolling the area suspected something amiss and examined the bus.

Jasin Officer In-charge of Police Department Deputy Supt Che Suza Che Hitam said the patrol unit decided to check the bus because its engine was still running and they heard a woman screaming from inside.

The case is being investigated under Section 376 and 511 of the Penal Code for attempted rape.
