Consumerist: Did Someone Say Malaysia’s Crime Index Is Going Down?
News hurts and terrifying that another WOMAN was robbed and slashed on her head at the car park of Mid Valley Megamall last Friday evening.
The 10.30pm incident took place we are advised from an entrance to a cinema, was the third robbery at major shopping complex car parks in the Klang Valley over the past month.
All three cases involved female victims who were walking alone.
A witness, who declined to be named, said the victim was found by shoppers who then alerted the mall’s security officers.
The victim was found leaning against a wall with blood gushing from her head. She was also injured on her hands, believed to be defensive wounds.
“The woman was too traumatised, her hands were shaking. She could only tell the security guards that she had been robbed,” said the witness.
It was learnt that the victim was only several metres away from her parked car when she was attacked. However, the car was not stolen.
Meanwhile, Mid Valley Megamall assistant public relations manager Stephanie Tan said they had surrendered CCTV recordings of the incident to the police.
“The victim was given immediate assistance by our staff and customers at the mall soon after the incident.
“She suffered injuries to her head and face, and was rushed to University Malaya Medical Centre in an ambulance,” Tan said in a statement last night.
The victim was discharged from the hospital yesterday morning.
Tan said the incident happened at an office tower lift lobby at parking zone G, at level four.
“We learnt that the victim lost her i-Phone, a small amount of cash, her identity card, driving license and bank cards, in the incident.
“The mall management will extend its full cooperation to facilitate investigations.”
Meanwhile, Brickfields police chief Assistant Commissioner Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid said police had yet to receive a report.
Perhaps some people ‘mudah lupa’ as if one remembers several years ago one Canny Ong (above) was tortured, murdered and burnt to death by her kidnapper after she mysteriously disappeared from the parking lot of an exclusive shopping mall in Bangsar district, Kuala Lumpur.
As I always say IF only policymakers and others we entrust with our safety pursue such with the kind of passion, and imagination our politicians terrorize each other Malaysia will be a great place to live in!
