BALIK PULAU: Police have detained a 45 – year – old unemployed man who was alleged to have masturbated in front of several unsuspecting nurses at the district hospital here last week.
The man was apprehended by detectives at his home in Titi Teras and he is expected to be charged under Section 14 of the Minor Offenses Act 1955.
