A tipsy 23-year-old construction worker allegedly molested a married woman at knife-point at Ramavaram during the wee hours of Saturday.
The worker Hari Prasad, (23), a native of Pappireddypatti in Dharmapuri, sneaked into the residence of the woman through the front door while she was sleeping. The woman had kept the door open so that her husband who works on night shift in a private firm can enter the house without waking her up.
Hari entered the kitchen from where he took a knife and groped the woman at knife-point. After the woman raised an alarm, Chandrasekar, who was recently selected for the Youth Brigade Wing, along with a few other residents stormed into the house of the victim and caught the construction worker. Based on a complaint, Valasaravakkam police registered a case and arrested the accused.
He was later remanded to judicial custody.
