SHAH ALAM: Subang Jaya police have handed custody of the father of a teen actress to their counterparts here over allegations of sexually harassing his daughter.

OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Iqbal Ibrahim confirmed that the 43-year-old was handed over to them yesterday.

“We will obtain a remand order on the suspect on Tuesday (today) to assist us in the probe,” he said when contacted.

ACP Mohd Iqbal said investigations were ongoing following a police report lodged by the victim.

“The victim alleged that the suspect had used a clothes hanger to beat her back in 2014,” he said.

Last Tuesday, the suspect was arrested at his home in Kedah at about 2.25pm.

Police also seized the suspect’s mobile phone for analysis.

On Sept 5, the 15-year-old actress lodged a report, alleging that her biological father sexually harassed her.

She also alleged that her welfare was neglected.

In her report, she claimed that her father constantly played pornographic movies on his mobile phone for her to watch.

She alleged the incidents occurred between 2013 and 2017 when she was six years old and living at Subang Jaya.

Police are investigating the case for neglecting a child and possession of pornographic material.
