BUKIT MERTAJAM: Police have arrested the former special aide of the Penang State Assembly Speaker to facilitate investigation into the allegation by a woman, who claimed that he had outraged her modesty, last Friday.

The 40-year-old man was detained at 5pm after he came to the Seberang Prai Tengah Police headquarters to give his statement.

“According to the 31-year-old woman, the incident occurred at her company’s event last Friday night.

“In the 11.15pm incident at the engineering company’s building at Jalan Rumbia here, the woman said she went to up to the office at the third floor to get a medical ointment for her friend.

“The man was said to have followed the woman before pushing her to a wall, kissed her on the lips and ran his hands all over her body including her private parts,” police sources told Bernama here tonight.
