Three Indonesian women, working for the owner of a catering company in Sungai Siput, say they have been enduring sexual abuse for past two years for their salaries.
The women claim that there 43-year-old employer would not pay them their RM400 monthly salary unless they have sex with him and would physically abuse them if they refused.
Unable to take the abuse any longer, the women sought a neighbour's help and fled the man's house.
"I have been molested, threatened with a knife, and beaten until my face, eyes and body are swollen," the Star Online quoted one of the women, a 26-year-old, as telling reporters after lodging a report at the Buntong police station.
"I came to Malaysia to earn money for my husband and child in Surabaya. Now I just want to go home. I can't take it any more," she added.
The other two women, both 23, said they ran away because they too could not take the abuse anymore.
The three said they were abused at the man's house in front of his docile wife and three kids.
Sungai Siput deputy OCPD Deputy Supt Mak Pak Chuai said police had sent the women for a medical check-up at the hospital.
