KUALA LUMPUR: Police have arrested a couple who allegedly assaulted and abused their Cambodian maid.

Cheras Acting OCPD Supt Abdul Rahim Hamzah Othman said Thursday that the couple, aged 42 and 43, were arrested about 7pm at their house in Taman Alam Damai, Cheras on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old Cambodian, who was employed by the couple through an employment agency in 2009, was believed to have been abused since January this year.

He said the maid, who had injuries on her body, hands and legs, escaped from her employer and sought help from a neighbour on Tuesday.

“They sent her to the employment agency before lodging a police report at about 5pm.

“Initial investigation reveal the couple used a wooden stick and wire to beat the maid. That caused the injuries on her body,

“She was sent to the hospital and was given out patient treatment,” he said.

The couple were remanded until November 26 and the case was being investigated under Section 324 of the Penal Code for causing injuries with a weapon, he said.
