A courier delivery man was arrested for allegedly attempting to rape a Chinese woman in her flat in Whitefield area in Bengaluru.
The incident happened on June 23, however, a complaint was lodged only on June 28 because the couple were not aware of the procedure for lodging a complaint, reported BM.
Police suspect that the accused working with RV logistics came with the intention of committing a crime as he reportedly wrote his name but mentioned the wrong phone number in the visitor’s register.
Bangalore Mirror reported that when the incident happened, the victim was in the flat with her three-year-old son. She opened the door to the courier man who had a parcel for her. After asking him to leave the parcel in the hall, she went into the bedroom to check on her son. That is when the attack happened and the man grabbed and molested her. After much struggle, she managed to get free but the man escaped.
She immediately informed her husband who was at work.
BM reported that the couple did not file a complaint as they thought the security guard would file it on their behalf.
A senior police officer said, “The communication gap was because they did not know the procedure to file a complaint. They thought that security officers of the apartment would lodge the complaint. There was further delay after they went to the wrong police station before being directed to the Whitefield police station. Soon after they filed complaint, we learnt that the courier was delivered by RV Logistics. So we rushed to their office and managed to catch him. The arrested is identified as Girish (23), a native of Chintamani residing in the city. He was produced before the magistrate and has been sent to judicial custody.”
