Taipei, Oct. 9 (CNA) The Taipei District Prosecutors Office indicted an absconded migrant worker from Vietnam Wednesday for using another person's ID to apply for a job as a masseur and then sexually assaulting a client.

The man, identified as Nguyen Minh Duc, came to Taiwan as a migrant worker in August 2014 and was reported by his employer as being unaccounted for in March 2015, leading to the withdrawal of his residence permit, according to the indictment.

He was found to have applied for a job at a massage parlor in Taipei in July this year with a copy of the ID of a Taiwanese national surnamed Ho (何), which he acquired from a compatriot in Taiwan, the indictment said.

Nguyen was accused of raping a female client late Sept. 9 when the victim went for a massage with her boyfriend at the parlor, according to the indictment.

After an investigation, the district prosecutor in charge of the case indicted the Vietnamese of offenses against sexual autonomy and the Household Registration Act by using the ID of another person.
