I'm so sure that many ex-convicts -- those released when the Emergency Ordinance was repealed - are roaming our city and country roads.
Day in day out, you read all these chilling stories of people being robbed.
In Kajang, a factory worker was robbed by a taxi driver and his accomplice after she had boarded the vehicle to get home to Semenyih.
Police managed to nab the two perpetrators after the woman made a report. The two have a criminal record.
Now, this other case is even worse. So, ladies, please please take care.
26-year-old saleswoman was abducted, robbed and taken on a terror ride
before being raped by one of her assailants in Kuala Lumpur early yesterday(Wednesday).
Here is The Sun report:
Her ordeal began when she was parking her car outside her apartment
compound in Taman Desa Jaya, Kepong at about 11pm on Tuesday.
As the victim, who works for a jewellery outlet in Sungai Buloh, was parking her car, a van suddenly drew up alongside.
Four men then rushed out and began smashing the windscreen and windows of her car, before dragging her into their van.
According to police sources, the woman was then blindfolded while one
of the men went through her handbag for cash and valuables.
Apparently dissatisfied with the small amount of cash and her
cellphone that they found in the handbag, the robbers forced her to
reveal the personal identification number (PIN) of her bank automated
teller machine (ATM) card.
They then went to an ATM machine from which they withdrew several thousand ringgit.
Her ordeal did not end there as the men then drove the victim to a house.
There she was threatened with harm if she did not give in to the sexual demands of a member of the gang.
It is learnt that the victim, who was blindfolded throughout the ordeal, was raped by the man while his accomplices watched.
At about 3am, the gang members dropped the victim off at an undisclosed location in Segambut.
The woman then sought the help of passers-by who took her home before she called the police.
Gombak police chief ACP Abdul Rahim Abdullah said police are on the trail of the gang members.
He said police are confident of identifying the men, who are believed to be ex-convicts.
"We are trying to trace from which bank branch they withdrew cash with her ATM card, and where she was raped.
"We believe this is the same group we busted last year and sent away
to the Simpang Renggam detention centre, but they were freed following
the repeal of preventive laws.
"We are working round-the-clock to track them down," Abdul Rahim said.
