A Chinese national who made RM15,040 (US$4,797) in just two weeks working as a prostitute was among three women rounded up at a service apartment block in Bukit Dumbar here.
Sources said the woman, in her 20s, had “serviced” 88 clients since coming to Penang as a tourist.
“Handwritten records showing transactions of RM150 or RM180 between her and the clients were found in the premises following the raid on Tuesday night,” sources said.
Also seized during the raid were several types of sex paraphernalia.
George Town OCPD Asst. Comm. Gan Kong Meng said two other Chinese nationals aged between 26 and 29 were also arrested in two separate apartment units.
“A client, who was also in one of the units, was brought back to the Patani Road police station, where his particulars were noted down before he was released,” he said. (mtq)
