A stalker allegedly invaded a Malaysian artist's studio to defecate on the floor and damage her paintings, among other vandalistic actions, while live tweeting the whole process

26-year-old entrepreneur Wan Nur Syaira took to Twitter to share the horrifying account last Thursday, 1 September.

In a series of tweets, Syaira shared that the man was suspected to be obsessed with her since 2020 when he came from Terengganu to Klang Valley to pretend to be a prospective client.

In an email dated 15 December 2020, the stalker claimed that he was from the sales and marketing department of a perfume bottle wholesale company and that they were interested in renting Syaira's art studio for a photoshoot.

The email struck Syaira as it showed "how proper he [could] write and how deceiving he could be".

"This is to show that he has the conscious mind to be normal and the rationality to act and plan his moves," she wrote.

Syaira told her team to ignore all the late-night direct messages (DMs) sent to them. The man was said to have commented on many of her social media posts and sent DMs to her, which she claimed she had never taken seriously.

Syaira is a painter who commissions abstract art for clients. She is also a model on Instagram who is known among her followers for her fashion.

It is her understanding that the man has bipolar disorder and is currently in a psychiatric ward.

Fast forward to last week, when the man broke into her art studio and ravaged the place

Syaira recounted that she and her team were not in the studio during the break-in.

She felt something was amiss with her unit when she saw her balcony door was opened as she was leaving. Hence, she called the guards in the building to check on it.

"I then got a call from the guard [telling] me that there was a guy screaming in my unit," she shared.

"After talking to the management, I [found] out that it's true a guy has entered my unit. My heart sank when I [found] out that it was this guy who has been obsessed [with] and following me online for a while now."

When she arrived at her unit, the police were with the man.

While he was at her studio, he was said to have thrown her possessions out from the balcony, resulting in a glass roof downstairs cracking.

The stalker was also said to have gone around the restaurants below her unit to give away her paintings on the pretext that they were "gifts" from him.

He allegedly burned her curtain, stabbed her commissioned paintings, pooped and left his boxer on the floor, and stubbed out a cigarette on her couch.

"He packed our tote bags, saying that [they were] his and offered the cops our new collection. I promise you that the list is endless," she lamented.

According to Syaira, the man also talked to some people occupying the building that she "cheated" on him, while to some others, he said he was going to marry her over the weekend.

Syaira also found out that the man live-tweeted his frenzy of destruction, with one post that reads "bring me Syaira" with a knife emoji

In a tweet at 11am, he told Syaira on Twitter to "unlock the door. I need rest".

Many of his tweets were frantic in nature, with some directed at the entrepreneur. He did not respond to netizens' warnings that his actions would land him in jail.

Speaking to SAYS, Syaira said she was told by the investigating officer that the man is currently in a psychiatric hospital

"He is still not jailed at the moment," she said.

On the day of the incident, she was appalled that the police allegedly asked her if she wanted to lodge a police report against the man or to let him walk as his brother was coming to pick him up.

She then asserted that she wanted to press charges against him despite the police warning that her the process would take up her whole week.

Two days after the incident, Syaira said, "He still continues to tweet and dm us like nothing happened. We had no further information and no updates on him whatsoever."

She only felt safe after she learned that he was in a psychiatric ward.

"I was informed that he has had an episode before and this is his second time," she said, before sharing some tips to protect one's privacy.

She also apologised to the people occupying the building for the trouble the incident had brought to them.
