“The couple lost a mobile phone, their MYKad and ATM cards; and also RM500 cash.”

“We have increased patrols in hot spots. Based on the information we received from the victims, we have stepped up our surveillance,” he added.

Earlier the injured victim’s 64-year-old wife had sent out a Whatsapp describing the incident:

“It’s true yesterday at around 6.00am I was robbed of my handbag and David who accompanied me was slashed on his arms. I had to conduct training and needed to be early to catch the LRT to my boss’ place to go in one car and thought it was safe since there’s a guard post near Apollos. In fact we were standing at the area near the Casablanca guard post which was with lights when we arrived. After a short while, the guard post lights were off and then 2 Indian men with parang confronted us, one snatched my handbag and the other slashed David. It was so sudden we couldn’t see the car no. plate of the car they drove off with. We yelled for the Casablanca guards but no one came. He is now admitted to UH for surgery on his hand as the cut is deep with tendons torn and they need repair. I cancelled all my cards. My daughter in law took me to police station to report and to get my IC & driving license replacement.”
