Police have advised the public to be careful when lending a hand to riders who appear to have fallen off their motorcycles because they could be robbers.
According to Ampang Jaya district police station, two people were recently robbed after they stopped their car to help two suspects in Taman Chempaka. The suspects had purposely fallen off their motorcycle in front of the victims’ car. As expected, the 67-year-old male victim alighted from his car and found himself being threatened with a knife by one of the suspects. The other suspect then went to open his car door and grabbed the handbag of the other victim still sitting in the car. Both victims suffered about RM1,000 in losses, which included cash and a few items.
