A HOUSEWIFE looking for a job ended up being confined to a hotel room for 11 days and raped by a recruitment agent, reported Harian Metro.

The victim, who was also forced to take drugs during her ordeal, had left her home in Jalan Ipoh at about 5.30pm on March 1 to meet the agent in Selayang for a possible job offer.

The agent is believed to be a member of a drug trafficking syndicate recruiting drug mules.

It is believed that the agent had trailed the victim back to her home after the meeting and used a knife to force her to follow him to a hotel in Chow Kit.

In the hotel room, she was beaten, raped and drugged by the agent.

The housewife only managed to escape on March 12 after she was spotted by her husband’s friend as the agent was taking her to Segambut.

The friend, who knew that the woman had been missing for the past few days, quickly alerted passers-by to her predicament.

The agent tried to flee but was later apprehended by members of the public and handed over to the police.
