Public help cops to nab robbers
JOHOR BARU: Members of the public and two policemen overpowered a parang-wielding robber and his accomplice after they slashed a 62-year-old man on his hand in an attempted robbery in Taman Sri Tebrau.
Johor police chief Deputy Commissioner Datuk Mohd Mokhtar Mohd Shariff said the armed assailant and two others approached the victim as he was about to alight from his parked car and slashed him, forcing him back into his car.
“Members of the public alerted the police and tried to help the victim, but the assailant started threatening them,” he said.
However, when the police arrived, the group helped the policemen to overpower two of the suspects, while one got away in the incident on April 23.
DCP Mohd Mokhtar said that the suspects, aged 24 and 28, have prior convictions.
He said both men have been remanded to assist in investigations
It may actually be the best option to run or fight when confronted by JB criminals, since they have repeatedly proven to hurt you anyway if you just surrender.
Even in the case above, the robbers wounded first, and demanded later.
But make sure you know what you’re doing and have the capability for such action.
