KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 7 — A 15-year-old boy had hidden under his target’s bed the entire day before carrying out the attack on the 25-year-old ground flight attendant on Sunday morning.
He had apparently broken into Fadilah Rosman’s house in Sepang after breaking the lock on the kitchen door.
Fadilah said she had seen a small clump of grass on the floor but did not think much of it.
“After watching television, I fell asleep in the living room,” she said.
“It was 10.45am when I entered my bedroom to change my clothes. To my surprise, the boy came out from under my bed with a stick and helmet.
“Before I could say anything, he hit me several times.”
Fadilah said that after he stopped hitting her, he took a knife from the kitchen and stabbed her several times.
She said she pleaded with the boy to let her go as she felt he was trying to kill her.
She asked him: “I never hurt you, why are you doing this to me?”
”The suspect replied, ‘You are the one making me want to kill you’,” she said.
Fadilah was bleeding all over when the boy suddenly stopped the attack and told her to keep quiet before going to the toilet to wash his hands.
”After that, he asked for my forgiveness and warned me not to lodge a police report before leaving the house,” she said.
Fadilah said she called several of her friends for help and they took her to a medical centre in Nilai, from where she was transferred to Tuanku Jaafar Hospital in Seremban.
One her friends lodged a police report.
Both attacker and victim were neighbours, living on the ground floor of a four-storey apartment block.
Fadilah said: “The boy had been stalking me since I began living there and has also been peeping at me through my bedroom window.
”I think he attacked me because I lodged a police report in 2011 after catching him in the act,” she said.
The report was, however, withdrawn after a discussion with his parents.
Fadilah said she was still in trauma following the incident and expects to take a long time to recover.
She was discharged from hospital yesterday and will be staying with her family for the time being.
Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Mohd Adnan Abdullah said the boy, who left his wallet under Fadilah’s bed, was arrested at 6pm on Sunday.
Police also seized the clothes he was wearing during the incident.
He has been remanded until Friday but is expected to be charged today.
Mohd Adnan said the case is being investigated under Section 326 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing grievous hurt and Section 453 for trespassing.
