"At first, my cousin and I didn't notice at all. The girl came into the lobby and noticed that the man was taking a photo of us. She told us immediately and I felt violated, so I went to ask to the man to ask him if he's taking a photo of us," the 21-year-old woman wrote.

Before she could grab his phone, the woman managed to glimpse photos of her and her cousin as the man (pictured above) quickly deleted them from his phone. She also saw photos of other women, all of which seem to be focused on their chests and taken in the condo's lifts.

The incident is believed to have happened at a condo in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur around 10.45pm on Sunday, 13 August.

As all of this was happening, the woman who brought attention to the violation kept rebuking the man for his actions, even after the writer of the viral Facebook post and her cousin exited the elevator

Fortunately, a young man who was also in the lift intervened. He'd also followed after the woman when she exited the lift, as the alleged pervert tried to block her from exiting the lift and actually tailed her when she did so.

At the time of writing, the writer of the Facebook post has lodged a police report regarding the incident. She'd also warned other female residents to be careful in case they encounter the same man doing "weird things".

"Girls who live here, please don't go outside alone or take the lift alone, especially at night. If no one is accompanying you, just be really careful," she wrote.

"If any of you see this guy, don't do anything if he didn't do any weird things. If he does, just provide information to the management office. Since I already made a police report, I believe they will take action on this man."
