The Intermediate Court has fixed July 6 to sentence a local man after he pleaded guilty to charges of housebreaking to commit theft and outraging the modesty of a woman.
Last Wednesday, DPP Syafina binti Abdul Hadzid revealed in court that Khairul Sazwan bin Kadir, 25, broke into a house on Jalan 11, Perpindahan Kampong Lambak Kanan at 5.15am on May 31 where he took two handbags.
While in the bedroom, the defendant came across the 31-year-old woman sleeping and outraged her modesty.
This woke the victim up causing the defendant to flee from the house through the kitchen door. The victim lodged a police report leading to the defendant’s arrest and recovery of the stolen items.
Judge Hajah Hazarena binti Pehin Orang Kaya Setia Jaya Dato Paduka Haji Abu Hurairah presided over the case.
