Last Thursday on Valentine’s Day, around 6:30am in Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a thief attacks a 48-year-old woman at Taman Mutiara Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Station.

The robber suspect follows the victim into the lift on CCTV. Once the two are inside, the man waits for the door to close. He punches the woman, causing her to fall on the ground, and attempts to snatch her handbag. While the victim is down, she continues to hold on to handbag.

The thief kicks the woman repeatedly to force her to let go. All she can do is shield her head from the heavy blows. After thief grabs ahold of handbag, she waves her hands at him, pleading with him not to do it.

As she stands up, the thief kicks then hits her head with the handbag. The heavy beating renders the woman completely helpless, and it was then that the thief removed her purse, before flinging away the handbag and making a run for it. The woman loses her personal identification documents and RM400 (motorbike).

The victim sustains bruises and injuries on her face, body, and swelling on her forehead. She is taken to Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (HUKM)

This Monday, February 18, police arrest 26 year-old Indian male suspect at his home in Taman Cheras, Jalan Cheras.
