A 25-year-old man was detained for allegedly molesting a young girl at an apartment in Taman Cheras Utama.

The arrest was confirmed by City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Rusdi Md Isa who said the suspect has been remanded for four days to help with investigations.

“We are investigating the case as physical sexual assault on a child, and sale and distribution of obscene material,” he told The Star.

He added that the victim’s father had lodged a police report on the matter.

Footage uploaded on social media on Monday that went viral showed a man being confronted by apartment residents.

Facebook user Noh Koris uploaded two videos claiming that the suspect allegedly molested and attempted to kidnap the victim, who is his neighbour’s daughter.

In one of his posts, he said the incident occurred around 1.45pm when the girl was returning from school.

One of the videos shows the suspect sitting on the ground next to his fallen motorcycle as a man with a stick confronts him.

The suspect claims in the video that he had just started his motorcycle engine to ride away when he was pushed and fell down.

The resident then is heard telling the suspect that the girl will come and clear the air.

The other video shows police officers at the scene handling the incident.
