A French tourist has been arrested in Malaysia for locking his naked girlfriend out of his hotel room, reports a Malaysian newspaper.

KUALA LUMPUR – A French tourist has been arrested for stripping his Malaysian girlfriend of her clothes and locking her out of his hotel room after an argument, a report said Wednesday.

The New Straits Times said the 46-year-old woman was found naked and cowering in a corner of the corridor by hotel staff, who covered her up with a blanket and brought her some clothes.

The 49-year-old French tourist was arrested over the incident in Kuala Terengganu, in northeastern Terengganu state, in the early hours of Monday, the daily said.

The man faces charges of criminal intimidation and "outraging the modesty" of the woman, it added.

Police had been called earlier in the night to break up a fierce argument between the pair, according to the report. The woman went home but returned to the hotel and the row flared again.

The newspaper quoted police as saying the pair had met in Malaysia three months ago and had seen each other regularly since.

    While blogs can be interesting and even relevant, they are no substitute for paid professionals who report news. As a news consumer, I urge you to find a trustworthy news source. Your paranoia serves no one, least of all yourself.

    News organizations share information as it comes, sometimes that is sporadic. For example, since you are so interested in sex workers, in the USA there was a woman who accused 3 Lacrosse players at Duke University of raping her. The news reported it happened based on interviews and police reports. However, with more time, it turned out she was lying/confused/whatever and no rape had occurred at all! News stories evolve - that does not mean they are intentionally lying.

    In the Malaysian story, it is likely she is a sex-worker given the information- in my opinion. However, by going directly to the newspaper that told this 'news' - you can see that even now the story is evolving:

    By the way, I am not a sir and it still isn't news.

    How did you know she was a sex worker when the newspaper story said it was his girlfriend? Do you have xray vision? I was criticizing the newspaper for lying to the public, not you, sir. Why didn't the newspaper just tell the truth...? That is what I do not understand...

    For example, a few weeks ago there was a news report worldwide about an american chap who killed his Cambodian "girlfriend" in their hotel room. Of course, this American was really a Korean man with a US passport who had a meth ice drug addiction for many years and was known all over Cambodia by expats for his drug problems and hooker girls, and yet the newspaper made it sound like a domestic spat and he just killed her like that. No, it was a bar girl, he got angry at her over money, the drugs kicked in, and he strangeld her. How do i know.? I had to go to blogs in Cambodia to find out the true story. NEVER trust newspapers, like that US woman who said she swam acorss the Pacific it now turns out she only swam 1/3 of the way, the rest she stayed on her cruise boat. SHEESH...

    I am aware that it was a sex-worker, but that still doesn't make it news.

    It IS news, all over the world now, but read between the lines, it was not his girlfriend, it was a hooker.......the newspaper never tell the truth on these cases until word leaks out later. Watch. this was a contretemps between a tourist and a hooker. simple as that.
