KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 27 — Police arrested two men, including a foreigner, believed to be involved in cases of abuse and sexual assault at a childcare centre in Lembah Jaya Selatan, Ampang, yesterday.

Ampang Jaya district police chief ACP Mohd Azam Ismail said the suspects, both aged 27, were detained at 5pm along Jalan Sri Kemuning after two police reports were filed.

“The police reports were lodged by two orphans, aged 13 and 14, at the Ampang Jaya police station at 1.36pm and 2.03pm, respectively,” he said in a statement today.

The initial investigations revealed one of the victims was allegedly beaten for playing with a phone in a room.

“(The victim) had bruises on the left thigh and calf and swelling on the left cheek, while the other complainant did not sustain any injuries,” Azam said.

One of the suspects had a criminal record.
