18 February 2009
The taxi driver who recently raped a 28-year-old clerk and later asked to her to pay for the taxi fare, has been arrested at a hospital where he was spotted by members of the public on 11 February 2009.
The 31-year-old suspect, who is believed to be responsible for raping at least 7 women in the Klang Valley, was at the hospital seeking treatment for injuries sustained in a drug deal gone bad. He is also suspected to be a drug dealer.
Police said he was not a taxi driver and the taxi that he used was reported stolen in Kuang, Rawang. The stolen taxi has since been burnt by the other party involved in the drug deal.
Authorities have received only 2 reports of rape so far and urged all other victims to come forward. The suspect has been remanded for one week to aid investigations.
