KUALA LUMPUR (THE STAR/ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A Bangladeshi man was badly beaten by an angry mob after he was caught allegedly raping a teenage girl in a cybercafe toilet at Sri Rampai, Setapak.

He was handed to the police drenched in his own blood and with bruises on the head, face and legs.

He is being remanded for a week for a rape investigation.

Police said the 13-year-old girl had accompanied her father to the cybercafe in Rampai Business Park at about 10.30pm on Thursday (Feb 18).

Her father engrossed himself in a video game she waited next to him, said sources.

It was then that the Bangladeshi suspect, who was also in the cyber cafe, invited the teen to enter the toilet with him.

"The victim followed him there and while in the toilet, she was molested and raped by the suspect," said KL CID chief Datuk Zainuddin Ahmad.

As the 30-year-old man raped the girl, he threatened her and warned her not to make a sound.

Her father eventually noticed that she was missing and went looking for her. He knocked on the toilet door and claimed that he found his daughter being sexually assaulted.

"The suspect was beaten up by the father and customers in the cybercafe. Police were called and we arrested the man. An ambulance also had to come to provide treatment for the man," Datuk Zainuddin said.

He added that the man did not have any identification on him.

The case has been referred to the KL Sexual Crimes, Domestic Violence and Child Abuse Investigations Division.
