Crime fears go viral in Malaysia*
* title taken from a report by Julia Zappei of the AFP, August 10, 2012
"The fear of crime is soaring in Malaysia as personal tales of
abduction, assault and robbery go viral online, upping pressure on authorities
to respond and triggering scrutiny of official claims that offences are down."
Edwin Ng has just forwarded us another incidence of crime that befell his colleague on August 9, 2012. This ladies' man directed the message to ladies but we don't see why gents should be exempted.
My colleague wrote;
~~~ I am still in the midst of trying to get back to normal, just like to
share with you on what happen (and do share if you want to, for lesson
learnt and minimize damages with prevention)
- My car was stolen from klcc car park at 1pm (I didn't realize that
until when we heard what happened to my house, rushed to the car park and
only noticed that)
- things that possibly led to the burglary, house keys left in the car,
season parking ticket (somehow the guy ramped thru the parking ticket
gate at klcc to get out), letters with my address, house auto gate
control, GPS (although not set to home)
- 3:30 2 guys went into my house, n ransacked the house, suddenly my maid
saw them, n she rushed to her room n locked herself in, they tried to
push the door, but later rushed out from the house with valuables, house
keys n my wife's car.
- 3:40 Genie received call from my maid, n she called 112, the police
turned up about 3:50 to the house, but since the robber took the house
key, my maid was lock in the house, police couldn't do much to enter the
house to check for damage, so advised to make police report at the
nearest police station.
- 5:30, we reached home after lodging report at klcc car park security on
my car, my maid was still in shock, we were also in shock as to the whole
incident...1 day with losing 2 cars n house was robbed......
I will be going to the bank today to settle the missing safe deposit box,
and later will go to the police station with my maid for photo
identification (since she is the only eye witness).
My son was luckily spared from this due to his school activity, as he
only returned home at 4:30, it could have been worst if the robber stayed
until then, and I don't think I can bear to see the consequences.
Still a bit shaken, but life has to go on. I applied leave on Monday n
Friday next week, so I will be coming in to work on Tuesday.
Am trying to recall, n make this a good lesson learnt for me, and share
with people we care about.
