Malaysia's serial rapist jailed 185 years!!!!

His name is Rashidi Omar. He is 27 years old and works as "puttu piring" seller - puttu piring is a local Malaysian delicacies.

However Rashidi Omar, from Kampung Beringin, Durian Tunggal is no delicacy, nor a delicate person.

He is a serial rapist - perhaps the worst serial rapist in Malaysia.

In all, he was charged with 15 counts of rapes, unatural sex, kidnapping, robberies and attempetd rape.

His crime spree, started 3 years ago in 2007.

His youngest victim is a 7 year old girl, while the oldest is a 46 year old woman.

He not only raped his victims, but kidnapped, tied, robbed and bite them!!

He is a beast..!!!

On Wednesday 19 May 2010, Rashidi was sentenced by the Malacca magistrate court to a total of 185 years jail and 24 strokes of the rotan.

His terror spree began on May 24, 2007, and his first victim was a seven-year-old schoolgirl.

Later, he began raping teenage schoolgirls before he started to rape women at knife-point and robbing them.

Several of his victims were raped while being tied with one having her right nipple bitten.

Rashidi, the Beast, was arrested at his home by police on Dec 1, 2009 after a special task force was set up to track him down.

Following investigations, police discovered that Rashidi's sexual attacks were not confined to Malacca but included assaults in neighbouring Negri Sembilan.

Sessions Court judge Zaharah Hussain sentenced Rashidi to a total of 185 years jail and 24 strokes of the rotan after he pleaded guilty to 15 charges involving nine victims aged between seven and 46.

“I really do not want to comment anymore but sincerely hope that you have truly repented,” she said to an emotionless Rashidi who stood passively throughout the proceedings.

He was sentenced for six counts of rape, six robberies, two attempted rape and one for unnatural sex. Zaharah ordered some of the jail terms to run consecutively and others to run concurrently.

Before sentencing, the court heard how three schoolgirls were duped into following him on his motorcycle before being raped at secluded oil palm estates in Cheng, Alor Gajah and Jasin, Malacca.

During mitigation, Rashidi has the canny to thank the court for allowing him to seek leniency for his crimes.

“I would like to apologise to everyone for what I have done. I am aware of what I did and have repented,” he said.

One thing for sure, his 9 victims will never forgive and forget the violence he did to them.
