A 28-year-old man who was fined by the Ayer Keroh magistrate’s court for exposing himself to a student claimed that he had forgotten to close the door of his apartment, reported Sinar Harian.
Teh Zhi Yong was charged under Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act for deliberately exposing himself to Hasliza Mokhtar, 23, at about 8am on Sept 27.
Hasliza had been on her way to class when she saw Teh lying naked on the floor of his home at Jayamuda Apartment in Ayer Keroh, Malacca.
When magistrate Mohd Fairuz Johari asked Teh during sentencing why he had not bothered to wear a pair of shorts or covered himself with a towel, Teh replied: “I forgot to close the door”.
Teh was fined RM100 in default of a month’s jail.
> Berita Harian reported that a gunman who tried to rob a goldsmith shop in Dungun, Terengganu, had to flee empty-handed after a glass display case he shot at 11 times failed to break.
State Acting CID chief Supt K. Manoharan said the gunman had entered the shop in Jalan Sura Gate at 5.30pm on Thursday, wearing a ski mask and gloves and carrying a sling bag.
He said the man had aimed an automatic gun at the staff, who however managed to escape by running to the back of the shop.
Supt Manoharan said the suspect then fired 11 shots at the glass case containing the jewellery but it did not break.
“When he failed to break the glass, he fled through the back door.
“It is believed that he made his getaway in a waiting car,” he said.
He added that although a closed-circuit television camera caught the gunman in his act, police have yet to identify him.
