A Penangite Walked Around Naked At 1AM, Claiming Goddess Mazu Ordered Him To Strip
Last night, at around 1 am, a 38-year-old man was caught roaming naked on the second floor of an apartment block in Relau, Penang
The man was caught by a woman after she stepped out of a lift and saw him wandering along the corridor of her apartment block, wearing only a pair of socks and shoes. He was holding a straw fan.
He ignored the woman and continued walking around the second floor, reported The Star Online. However, the woman, fearing her safety, decided to call the Paya Terubong Village Development and Security Committee's (JKKK) service team for help.
Frankie Kee, Chairman of JKKK, who is also Special Assistant to Paya Terubong Assemblyman Yeoh Soon Hin, was quoted by The Star Online saying that a service team member who received the call contacted the police immediately.
"Three of our members went to the scene with the police and the man was still there. He told us that Goddess Mazu had told him to strip," he told The Star Online.
However, their attempts to get him to put on clothes didn't work, as he kept claiming it was Goddess Mazu who had ordered him to strip
At which point, one of the service team members pretended to be possessed by the same Goddess and ordered him to put on his clothes. The idea worked.
Following which, he was taken away by the police and has been sent to the Jalan Perak psychiatric hospital for observation, OCPD Asst Comm Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said.
