We Are All Living In Fear...
The NST report is HERE.
This is all so sad that it is the same old story over and over again... and this kind of crime has happened in many locations around the Klang Valley, notably near or at junctions with traffic lights.
In this incident, Capt Gurcharan Singh Sidhu, 63, and his wife Datin Arunee Dee, 38, were in their car at a traffic- light junction in Jalan P. Ramlee on Sunday evening when they were attacked and robbed by two men on a motorcycle.
According to the report, the pillion rider smashed the front passenger window with a metal object and tried to grab Arunee's handbag. She put up a fight, but was knocked unconscious by a punch to her face. The pillion rider then grabbed the bag and the two escaped in heavy traffic.
Gurcharan said he was too stunned to react.
"My wife was unconscious. She was bleeding from her arms and legs after the window's shattered glass cut her," he told the New Straits Times yesterday.
"Motorists behind us kept honking thinking I was purposely holding up traffic.
"No one came to our aid. They were probably afraid for their own safety."
