KUALA LUMPUR (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - Two women were raped and robbed during "staged" job interviews in two separate incidents.

On Saturday, a 22-year-old fresh graduate went to a budget hotel in the city to attend the "interview" after she applied for a sales promoter job through a website.

City deputy CID chief Asst Comm Khairy Arasah said a few days earlier, the victim had sent a job application to an e-mail address, and was asked to attend the interview by the suspect at about 3.30pm. He said in an e-mail, the victim was offered RM400 (S$159) per day for the job by the suspect.

The victim was asked to meet the "interviewer" in a room at the hotel. "When she entered the room, the suspect who was alone, raped her before robbing her of her belongings," he said at a press conference on Wednesday.
