“In his recorded statement, the victim claimed that he was punched, kicked and beaten with a metal rod on his private part,” Noor Hashim said.
Following the report, police detained three youths aged between 14 until 18 at an apartment in Tampoi Indah during a raid at 4.50am on Monday morning.
“The victim may have known the suspects, as he had been harassed by his assailants for quite some time into joining them as a gang member,” Noor Hashim said.
