Singapore-Malaysia Bus Service Driver Slashed and Almost Robbed


Great. JB is the same as ever, short-lived police enthusiasm and media muzzling or not.

This is one of the bus services that plies the route between Malaysia and Singapore every single day. It looks like whether it is by rapist taxi, motorcyle or on foot in broad daylight, civilians coming to Jb – especially the city area – are not safe from the overlord that is CRIME.

From Yahoo News:

SBS Transit driver attacked by parang—wielding men in JB

SINGAPORE: A Singapore bus driver was attacked by parang—wielding men in a bold robbery attempt in the southern Malaysian city of Johor Bahru on Tuesday evening.

The incident occurred on SBS Transit bus service number 160 which had just left the Kotaraya shopping centre. It was heading for the Woodlands Checkpoint at the border with Singapore.

A caller to MediaCorp’s News hotline said the driver was slashed with a parang when he tried to close the door on the men who were trying to board.

An SBS Transit spokesman told Channel NewsAsia that the injured driver would be transferred from the Johor General Hospital to Singapore soon.

He is believed to be a Singapore permanent resident in his early thirties.

It is not known how many passengers were on board at the time of the incident or if any of them were injured. The assailants fled immediately after the incident.

Service 160 plies between Kotaraya in Johor Bahru and the Jurong East Interchange in Singapore, and the journey usually takes about 70 minutes.

    Don’t generalise. I’ve met many Johoreans who are lovely people.

    It is said that half JB’s population came from other parts of the country. It is believed that many or most robbers come from a neighbouring country, or a neighbouring state. Keep the chin up, and don’t give up in the fight against crime (and negative attitudes like Edi##’s).

    Been staying more than 20 years and now find JB is a haven for criminal and like. I think PMC would benefit from this.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so
    she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!
