A student was attacked by a security guard last month at a lift of a condominium in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur.

The guard had been hired to protect the residents of the condominium.

Relating her ordeal at a press conference, the woman said the guard had followed her into the lift on the first floor.

"I became suspicious when he did not press any buttons but instead stood behind me," she said.

Feeling uneasy, she moved to stand next to the man who was wearing a security guard vest so she could see what he was doing.

The woman lives on the sixth floor with her aunts.

Put up a fight

"When the door opened, the man suddenly grabbed me from behind and put his hand over my mouth while trying to drag me back inside," she said.

The woman screamed and put up a fight.

The man fled through the staircase after her aunt, who had heard her screams while cooking and saw the attack, rushed out to help.

They reported the incident to the condominium management office, but were told that the office did not have details of the guard as he had only been working there for a week after being recommended by one of the residents.

They also made a police report the same day.

The woman, who is traumatised by the attack, said she now has difficulty sleeping at night and is always scared when she is alone.

Police said they have identified the security guard and are investigating the case.
