Now you don’t even have to stop at a petrol station to be ambushed and brutally assaulted. The animalistic, inhuman, godless, evil b*astards so common in Johor will come to find you on the road.
But like the other recent cases, this happened at night. Not even after midnight, mind you! As soon as the sun even starts to go down, the beasts will be on the prowl.
The safest thing to do: stay at home at night. Do not go out at all. Not even in a group are you safe in Johor!
Johor police, this is my ultimatum: Find and catch these particular criminals, or I will write scathing letters criticizing the situation in Johor every week until they are published.
And when you’re done with that, there is ANOTHER gang rape case that happened the day after at the bottom of this post!
UPDATE 15 JUNE: Sketch and identity of one of the rapists. If you see this man, please remove his eyeballs from his head with a screwdriver.
UPDATE 16 JUNE: 14 have been arrested in connection with this and other cases.

HAVE FUN WITH US OR WE’LL KILL HIM: JB robbers kidnap couple and rape girl, 19
I had no choice but to say yes
June 14, 2007
SHE watched helplessly as four knife-wielding robbers took turns to ruthlessly beat up her boyfriend.
Then one of them gave her this chilling choice: ‘Let us have fun with you, or we will kill your boyfriend.’
The woman, 19, felt she had no choice but to comply. She was then gang-raped by three of the robbers, while her semi-conscious boyfriend, 22, lay metres away.
The horrific incident happened around 10pm on Monday night in Gelang Petah in Johor, near the Second Link.
The boyfriend, who wanted to be known just as Ah Li, said that he had driven to Pontian to pick up his waitress-girlfriend to return home to Johor Baru.
They were in Gelang Petah when a silver Toyota suddenly banged into their red Proton Iswara from behind.

Ah Li, a mechanic, said he saw four burly men in the other car, so he decided not to stop.
His girlfriend, May (not her real name), said: ‘The car kept flashing its high beam at us. That’s when we realised something was wrong, so we accelerated to get away.’
Ah Li called his older brother on his handphone to alert him that they were being pursued. He asked his brother to get help.
Then he made the fatal mistake of turning off the expressway in Nusajaya to shake off their pursuers – and ended up on a dead-end road.
Ah Li tried frantically to turn the car around, but it broke down.
When the robbers caught up with them, Ah Li tried to call his older brother for help again, but a robber snatched away his phone.
When he tried to escape, the robbers pulled out two knives, beat him up and slashed his right leg.
They bundled their victims into the Toyota, with May seated in front between the driver and a robber holding a knife at her abdomen. Ah Li was subdued by the two other robbers in the back.
When they reached a toll booth, the robbers pressed the knives into their victims and warned them not to say anything.
The toll booth attendant did not realise anything was amiss, despite there being three people squeezed in the front.
The robbers stopped the car at a deserted clearing in Taman Tampoi Indah, some 40km away from the robbery site, reported The New Straits Times.
Said May: ‘They pushed my boyfriend out and kept beating him.
‘Then one of them grabbed my arm and said, ‘If you let us have some fun, I won’t kill your boyfriend. After we are done, I’ll let you both go free.’
‘Under those circumstances, I had no choice but to say yes.’
She thought she would only have to endure one rape. But after the first man was done, two others raped her as well while the last robber kept watch over her semi-conscious boyfriend.
They then left the victims and sped off.
May stumbled to the main road and tried to get help.
Thankfully, five people on their way to supper saw the crying girl and stopped their car.
They called the police and ambulance – but were asked to call other police branches, as the robbery and rapes had taken place in different jurisdictions.
Said one of the good Samaritans: ‘The boyfriend was lying on the grass bleeding… We waited for half an hour, and when no police came, three of my friends sent them to the hospital in the car, while two of us followed in a taxi.’
He said he felt sickened when they passed a toll booth just 500m from where they found the victims, and saw a police patrol car.
Equally frustrated was Ah Li’s older brother.
The 27-year-old salesman was in tears as he recounted his brother’s distress calls.
Recalling the second call, he said his brother had shouted: ‘The car has stalled!’
He then heard a commotion, then May screaming: ‘They have a knife!’ before the phone was snatched away.
His parents went to a police station to make a report, but no action was taken.
The brother then drove to the Gelang Petah area himself to try to look for them.
He spotted a patrol car and flagged it down. He said he begged the three police officers inside to help search for the couple, but the officers were unmoved and later drove off.
A Johor police spokesman said the unfortunate situation had arisen because the robbery and rape took place in different jurisdictions.
He said that when the public call the police, they need time to ascertain the location and situation of the crime, and delays may result.
He said the matter would be investigated thoroughly.
From The Star 13 June 2007:
JOHOR BARU: A 19-year-old girl was raped by three men as her 22-year-old boyfriend could only watch helplessly, after he had been slashed twice.
The victims were abducted by four men after a brief car chase and taken to a secluded area in Taman Tampoi Indah where the girl was raped.
The victims had been on their way to the city from Pontian at 10.30pm on Monday when a car rammed them from behind in Gelang Patah.
Sensing trouble, they did not stop but the vehicle chased after them. After about 10km, the victims’ car broke down near Nusajaya.
Two men armed with parangs stepped out of the car while another two remained inside.
The two took the victims’ belongings but the boyfriend tried to escape. How- ever, he was caught by one of the assailants and slashed twice on his right leg. He was also punched and kicked.
The victims were then forced into the assailants’ car and taken to Taman Tampoi Indah, where three of the suspects took turns raping the girl while the fourth man watched.
They then fled.
The girl managed to flag down a passer-by and the two were taken to Sultanah Aminah Hospital for treatment.
The man is currently receiving treatment while the girl has lodged a report at the Tampoi police station.
Johor Baru (south) OCPD ACP Shafie Ismail confirmed the case. He urged those with information on the case to call the police at 07-221 2999 or the nearest police station.
The next gang rape case, from The Star 14 June 2007:
JOHOR BARU: A group of men took a couple on a terror ride before raping the woman, the second such case in as many days here.
A 55-year-old contractor and his 35-year-old female friend had stopped at a petrol station along the Pasir Gudang highway at 10.30pm last week.
As he was filling up, three men armed with parang overpowered him and forced both victims into the car.
The assailants took the victims on a one-hour terror ride before stopping at a secluded area along the highway.
As in the case on Monday, the contractor was slashed in the leg when he tried to escape.
With the injured victim watching helplessly, the men took turns to rape the woman before fleeing in another car driven by an accomplice.
The victims lodged a police report after the incident.
On Monday, a 19-year-old girl was raped by three men as her boyfriend watched helplessly in Taman Tampoi Indah.
Their car was rammed into by another car. Three men in the car then abducted the couple. The boyfriend was also slashed in the leg when he tried to escape.
In another incident, a doctor, in her 50s, fell and injured her head after two thieves on a motorcycle snatched her handbag while she was walking to her car in Taman Melody yesterday.
Passers-by who saw the incident caught one of the suspects. He was handed over to the police.
