(The Star) - Another woman has been brutally attacked in broad daylight at a car park near a hypermarket here.
Nooralida M. Noor was getting into her car at a shopping centre at around 2.50pm on Tuesday when a man forcibly entered her car and slashed her left arm and neck.
Although she fought back and tried shouting, the man pinned her down and warned her “not to be stupid”, she said in her Facebook account.
The commotion attracted the attentions of another woman and her son. The attacker then panicked and fled.
Nooralida drove to a police station before seeking treatment at the Gleneagles Hospital. Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Amiruddin Jamaluddin has asked witnesses to call the Selangor police hotline at 03-2052 9999.
Recently, Internet marketeer Chin Xin-Ci posted on Facebook her ordeal of being almost kidnapped by two men at a shopping mall car park on May 27.
Less than 24 hours later, two women were robbed of RM80,000 at the same place while another woman was robbed at the outdoor parking lot near a shopping centre on June 4.
On June 24, a woman nearly had her finger severed by an armed robber as she stopped in front of her friend’s house at Taman Tun Dr Ismail.
Just 32 hours earlier, another woman was robbed and slashed on the head while she was walking towards her car at a shopping mall car park.
Meanwhile, MCA Public Services and Complaints Department head Datuk Seri Michael Chong advised the people to be careful of being approached by those who claimed to be policemen.
He said that in the latest case on April 27, 22-year-old student Teng Sheng Hao was robbed at a shopping mall in the city by a bogus policeman.
Teng claimed a man in plainclothes came up to him and accused him of being involved in a credit card theft.
Teng agreed to cooperate after he believed that the man was a policeman although he didn’t show his authority card.
The man then robbed Teng of his car keys, handphone and his wallet. He was also forced to give up his ATM card number.
The victim later found out that about RM10,000 had been withdrawn from his account.
