SEREMBAN, Malaysia: A young woman who is believed to have been raped and assaulted before being dumped on the roadside is in the Intensive Care Unit of the Tuanku Ja'afar Hospital (TJH) here.
The unidentified woman in her 20s suffered serious head injuries and was found unconscious near a traffic intersection in Lukut, Port Dickson, by passers-by at 6.35am on Friday morning.
State OCCI ACP Hamdan Majid said motorists noticed a woman clad in a pink T-shirt and knee-length denim pants lying by the roadside and called for an ambulance.
"The victim may have been hit with a blunt object as she had sustained injuries to the back of her head," he said.
ACP Hamdan said the victim also sustained injuries on both elbows and knees, which may have been a result of her being dragged on the road.
"Her identity is unknown but we believe she is local. She is still in the ICU but her condition is stable now," he said.
