A would-be snatch theft attempt was avoided when one would-be victim decided to take things into her own hands.
Taking to Twitter, @atikahzaini shared her experience of how she foiled a snatch theft attempt nearby Ampang Point, Kuala Lumpur.
Recalling her experience, here is what happened.
“Today, I had the experience foiling a snatch theft attempt on me by two criminals. Thank god I was able to pry my bag away from the thieves but it destroyed my favourite bag in the process.”
“I urge everyone to be careful. The incident took place near Ampang Point, around 4.30 pm.”
Imagine that, in broad daylight! She shared images from the incident, showing the thieves smashing the passenger side window in an attempt to steal her handbag.
“I noticed that the thieves were eyeballing me from afar right before the Ampang Point traffic light.”
“As the light turned green, I made a right and left turn, making my way to a nearby shop.”
“That was when then smashed my window, and the struggle began. I shouted and began to reclaim my handbag from the thieves.”
@atikahzaini shared that the incident was not the first in the area.
“Police informed me that on the very same day, a total of four snatch thefts were reported, with mine being the fourth.”
We urge readers to be extra careful, especially when frequenting the Ampang Point area, to avoid being a victim of these criminals.
Let’s hope that the victim will recover from this ordeal, and the police will take the necessary action to stop snatch thefts at the Ampang Point area.
