“The incident happened on the evening of October 18 near YMCA road. We have identified the accused and he has been arrested. The man, a painter by profession, was earlier involved in a couple of cases including stalking and indecent behaviour,” said a senior police officer from north Kerala.
The Kerala police on Sunday arrested a man from Kozhikkode after a video of him trying to stalk and molest a woman went viral.
The region is known for better law and order statistics and being women-friendly but the latest incident has sent shockwaves across the state.
