A gang of thieves using sex as bait effectively lured and victimized two unsuspecting men inside their hotel rooms earlier this month in Malaysia.
The men, who are both aged 28, had just arrived at the budget hotel room in Sibu in the Borneo state of Sarawak, when a young woman unexpectedly showed up and knocked at their front door.
When she offered sex, the two guys eventually let the stranger in, reported the Rakyat Post. As the woman was entering, two other men suddenly barged in and proceeded to rob the victims of their money and other valuables.
“The victims were punched with a knuckle duster when they refused to hand over their valuables, causing them to suffer head injuries,” local district police chief ACP Saiful Bahari Abdullah was quoted as saying.
“The three suspects fled with 300 Ringgits ($75) in cash and two mobile phones together with two other accomplices who were waiting at the entrance of the hotel.”
Since the incident, police said six people, five males (aged between 19 and 30) and a 23-year-old woman, were reportedly arrested, detained and being investigated at a rented house in the city for their alleged crime.
