KLANG: A 31-year-old Vietnamese woman fell to her death when she was believed to have slipped while trying to leap from one building to the next in a bid to escape from the Special Task Force for Anti-Vice, Gaming and Gangsterism (STAGG) raiding team yesterday afternoon.

Nguyen Thi Don, believed to be working as a masseuse in Bukit Tinggi, tried to evade the raiding team by jumping from the window on the first floor of a building here in Bukit Tinggi.

Klang Selatan district police chief Assistant Commissioner Alzafny Ahmad said the raiding team stormed the massage centre and was checking the premise when they received information that Nguyen and another woman was at the next building.

“The raiding team was prying open the grille door to enter the building when they heard a loud scream from the upper floor. Once they went into the premise, they found a foreign woman hiding in the toilet.

“Further checks revealed that the kitchen window was opened and the raiding team looked down to find Nguyen sprawled on the road,” said Alzafny.

A medical team from the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital arrived and declared Nguyen dead.

Post mortem results today showed she had died of severe head and chest injuries due to the fall and the case has been classified as sudden death.

Alzafny said in the raid, the STAGG team had successfully rescued three women from China believed to have been exploited as sex workers.
