The TikTok went viral, with many netizens showing their concern and prompting the victim to explain the alleged assault in a follow-up video
He explained that the incident happened at around 5pm when he was about to board the train to his home in Kajang after finishing work.
Before boarding the train, he decided to go to the men's toilet at Sungai Buloh MRT station. He noticed that there was a man standing in front of the toilet. The man allegedly followed the victim as he walked in.
"At the time, I didn't think much of it. I thought maybe he also wanted to use the toilet. The situation in the toilet was very quiet and there were only the two of us inside," recounted the victim in the video.
Before leaving the toilet, the victim went to the sink to wash his hands, and shortly after, the man went to the sink next to him.
The man then asked the victim, "Where are you going?"
"I'm going home," the 23-year-old responded.
By the victim's account, the man then walked behind the victim and groped his buttocks.
The police told him they could not charge the alleged assaulter because there were no witnesses at the scene
"The police told me that the best they could do at the moment was to regularly patrol the area of the incident," he told SAYS.
Since the video went viral on TikTok, the man said he has received tremendous support from netizens, which gave him the courage to open up to his friends on the matter.
He also told SAYS that he would like to advise victims of sexual harassment and assault to open up to the person they are most comfortable with instead of keeping it to themselves in order to feel better.
