People never learn… Stopping at ANYWHERE, especially petrol stations, in the dead of night is asking for trouble. See 14 Arrested – Johor Gang Rapes Solved?, Johor Criminals Chase and Ram Car, Rape Girl (and Another Gang Rape On Next Day) (second case) and JB: Woman Opens Car Door For Robber and Gets Carjacked, Gang-Raped.
And though the police should note this pattern, hey can’t be staking out every petrol station in Johor.
So Johor citizens beware… Top up on petrol in daylight, and hold your bladder until you reach Singapore where it’s SAFE.
For Singaporeans, well, tough luck. It’s Johor and they are insanely envious of your wealth. Stay in Singapore where people don’t get their faces cut off for being born.
The Johor criminals seem to be reappearing, which brings me to the pondering: Did they ever really stop their attacks, or was the media just quietly asked not to report Johor crimes for a certain length of time?

Cops hunt for duo who robbed Singaporean
JOHOR BARU: Police have formed a task force to hunt down two men who slashed and robbed a Singaporean man.
On Wednesday, a man armed with a parang injured the Singaporean at a petrol station and hijacked his car.
The victim and his wife had stopped for petrol near the train station in the city central area at 4.20am.
The wife went to buy some snacks while the husband went to pay for the petrol.
He returned to the car and was about to start the engine when the robber approached him, slashed him in the face and drove off in the car.
Acting state police chief Senior Asst Comm (I) Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said Supt Gan Tian Kee would lead the team to hunt down the suspects.
“We believe there are two suspects involved,” he told a press conference yesterday.
