4 Teenagers forced into prostitution by a couple they had met on WeChat

Four unsuspecting teenagers were recently forced into prostitution by a couple they became friends with via Chinese multi-purpose social media app, WeChat.
According to the Star, the teenagers, who were in search of jobs, were promised employment by the suspect, 30-year-old man and his 22-year-old girlfriend.
But they did not get the jobs they anticipated, but were signed up to a sex trade.
Trouble began for the couple after the minors, one of them a male, were arrested for working as under-aged persons and without a permit following a raid on the outlet they plied their trade at a "cybercity" near here at about 2am on Feb 7.
City police chief, Asst Comm M. Chandra, who disclosed this confirmed the victims– three girls aged 15, 17 and 18, and a 16-year-old boy – were brought in to work as “guest relation officers”, who also perform sexual services as part of their job description.
ACP Chandra also said the parents of the victims were not aware of their children's activities.

The teenagers have been sent to shelter homes in peninsular Malaysia, where they are expected to undergo counseling.
