6-Year Old Boy Escapes Abductor By Running Out Of LRT Train

A six-year-old boy who was abducted while playing outside his Sri Pahang Flats in Bangsar and taken on a LRT ride, escaped by running out of the train at Taman Melati LRT station this afternoon.

Mohd Rahimy Mohd Noor in relating his terrifying experience, said he was playing with friends at his neighbourhood at noon when a man wearing face mask and a black T-shirt, grabbed him.

He claimed the man took him to the nearby Bangsar LRT station where they went on a ride.

The boy said he was too afraid of the man but decided to attempt his escape when the train door opened at the Taman Melati LRT station.

Mohd Rahimy said he dashed out of the train and sought help from an auxiliary police officer on duty at the train station.

"I was initially cared that the man would harm me. We passed by several stations before I decided to try and escape from him.

"When the train door opened at this station, I quickly ran out from the train," he said.

Police later picked Mohd Rahimy from the station and taken to the Wangsa Maju police station.

Video of Brave Woman In Snatch Theft A Re-enactment

Many would be disappointed to find out that the viral video of a woman putting up a brave fight against snatch thieves in her house compound was, in fact, a mere re-enactment.

The video, which was shared on the Malaysian Crime Awareness Campaign’s Facebook page, clearly states that the video was a re-enactment for educational purposes.

It had been shared on Facebook more than 4,200 times and caught the attention of many who commended the woman for defending herself.

The one-minute video showed a woman parking her car in her house porch, while a motorcycle is seen observing the car as she drives in.

As the woman gets out of her car, the pillion rider gets off the motorcycle and slips into the house compound just before the gate shuts.

He then proceeds to snatch her handbag, but the woman tries to cling on to it. Unable to do so, she retaliates and springs into action, kneeing the robber in the stomach and kicking him to the ground.

She then starts pounding on the man until his accomplice comes to his aid by threatening her with a knife.

She flees into the safety of her house as the crooks left after their failed attempt to rob the woman.

Several users commented on the video which was uploaded on YouTube, including Suraya Khan, who posted: “I salute this girl and wish to react like her in the same situation!”

Sacked Maid May Be Involved in Baby Freddie's Abduction

The sacking of a maid six months ago may have led to the kidnapping of 20-month-old Baby Freddie from his mother’s home in Bangsar.

The maid was among two suspects arrested yesterday to assist investigations into the kidnapping of Freddie, who was later found abandoned in Taman Tasik Titiwangsa at noon on Saturday.

City police CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ku Chin Wah said the Filipina, aged 39, and her local boyfriend, a 53-year-old plumber and electrician who was with her at the time, were arrested at a rented flat in Taman Desa here.

The woman had worked for Freddie’s mother, Sarah Joseph, for about a year before stopping work six months ago.

It is learnt that a complaint was lodged to her agency, which later reassigned her to another employer.

“We have reasons to believe that the two can either directly or indirectly help in the investigations,” SAC Ku told reporters at the Jalan Pantai police station.

He said the woman who has been working here since 2004 was now with a new employer in Damansara.

Both suspects will be remanded for 14 days.

Baby Freddie was snatched by a man who arrived at Joseph’s house at about 6.30pm on Friday.

SAC Ku said the man who was arrested did not match the photofit made based on witnesses’ description of the kidnapper and police were still looking for other suspects.

“It is still too early to speculate. We have yet to identify who was there during the incident,” he said.

Several items were also seized from the suspects’ flat.

Meanwhile, Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Muhammad Azlee Abdullah has ruled out the possibility of the baby’s father being involved in the kidnapping.

In a related development, Paul Joseph, the brother of Sarah Joseph, thanked members of the press for their coverage of the incident.

“We are certain that the reports by the press played a huge part in the safe return of Freddie and for this, we are immensely grateful,” he said in a statement.

He added that his sister and Freddie were together and safe in a hospital.

“Sarah is receiving treatment for the injuries she suffered during the abduction,” he said, adding that the family, together with the police and the British High Commission, would issue a full statement early next week.

Local man, Filipino Woman Nabbed in Baby Freddie Kidnapping

A 53-year-old man and his Filipino girlfriend, 39, have been detained to assist in the investigations into the kidnapping of Baby Freddie in Bangsar on Friday.

City CID chief Datuk Ku Chin Wah said the suspects were picked up at a flat in Taman Desa at about 11am on Sunday.

The female suspect had worked for the victim's family for around a year before she stopped six months ago.

"We have reason to believe that they can help in the investigations," Ku told reporters at the Jalan Pantai police station on Sunday.

SAC Ku said that the woman was now working for a new employer in Damansara and has been living in Malaysia since 2004.

He added that both suspects would be remanded for 14 days from Monday to assist in the investigations.

SAC Ku said the male suspect did not fit the photofit based on witnesses descriptions and police were still looking other suspects that were involved in the case.

"We have yet to identify who was there during the incident," SAC Ku said.

Baby Freddie was snatched away by a man who arrived at Joseph's house at about 6.30pm on Friday.

The man and a woman came in a Toyota Camry. He got out of the car rushed into the house when Joseph was feeding her 20-month-old Freddie. He grabbed the child, ran out and handed him to the woman before they drove off.

Baby Freddie was found in Taman Tasik Titiwangsa at noon on Saturday. Police have classified the case as kidnapping.

‘Camerons is still safe to visit’

It is still safe for tourists to go to Cameron Highlands, although hoteliers fear poorly planned development and rampant land clearing are harming tourism prospects.

Cheng Weng Kin, general manager of Parkland Hotels and Apartments, said hotel booking cancellations had risen up to 40% since the Oct 23 Bertam Valley flash flood.

He said this was taking a toll on the tourism sector as people feared getting caught in another flood or landslide.

“Please understand that Bertam Valley is located far away from the main tourist spots. The main road accessibility is not affected and it is safe to travel here,” he told The Star.

Cheng, who urged the Government to gazette Cameron Highlands as a tourism destination, said tourists had been flocking there in droves since accessibility improved.

However, he said even tourists noticed a rise in temperatures as land clearings were constantly taking place.

“There are always new areas being cleared. During the rainy season, we have to explain to tourists why their bath water turns the colour of teh tarik (milk tea).

“We recently installed large water filters, and we provide guests with filtered water dispensers. It’s no use using kettles now because they turn yellow after a week,” he said.

Cheng, who agreed that corruption was present in the system, said he foresaw a very bleak future for tourism in the highlands if uncontrolled development was not curbed.

Cheng also disagreed with district officer Datuk Ahmad Daud’s statement that the situation in Cameron Highlands was “under control”.

However, he said the media and NGOs were doing a good job of highlighting problems there.

He said hoteliers wanted the main road widened for better traffic management. They were also still waiting for the popular Brinchang night market along the main road to be relocated since it had caused massive traffic jams.

They were also lobbying for an end to haphazard development, which increased the risk of landslides and flash floods.

“It is ironic that although our MP is the Natural Resources and Environment Minister, no action has been taken since the elections,” he said.

“As for the district office, we have met with them and with the local council for the past two years, but no action has been taken.”

'Tornado' hits Ipoh village

A tornado-like phenomenon has hit Kampung Manjoi here, blowing away zinc roofs, tiles and the ceiling from about 35 homes.

Trader Mohd Shahron Zulkifli, who witnessed the 6.45pm incident on Monday, said the winds were “insanely” strong and he could even see the swirling effects similar to that of a tornado.

“This is the first time I have seen such scary weather,” he said. “I was terrified.”

He said the weather was gloomy but it did not rain.

“The roof of my home was blown away and the electrical appliances went dead,” he added.

Mohd Shahron said he was waiting for assistance to replace the roof tiles.

“I have nowhere else to go. I hope help will reach my home in time,” said the 37-year-old, who is living in Jalan Juara with his wife and five children.

Among the areas affected at the village were Jalan Perwira, Jalan Menteri and Jalan Pemimpin.

Strong winds had wreaked havoc in the northern states in the past. In September last year, strong winds blew away zinc roofs and caused flash floods in several areas in Penang.

In 2010, a mini “twister” uprooted signboards and damaged houses in Perlis.

Retired army personnel Ashari Mohd Dayid, 71, said he was resting at his home when the strong winds came.

“I could hear the wailing sound. Then it got really dark outside. I prayed for my safety and my wife’s safety as well,” he said.

They lost the roof of their house.

Manjoi assemblyman Mohamad Ziad Mohamed Zainal Abidin said the Umno Youth, Wanita and Puteri wings have been mobilised to help the victims.

“From the reports we gathered, some 400 roof tiles need to be replaced and all party members have been called in to help the villagers move their belongings and fix their roofs.

“We will continue to assess and monitor the situation should more help be required,” he said, adding that Rela groups were patrolling the village at night to prevent theft.

Five #Myanmar kidnap victims rescued

Police have rescued five Myanmar nationals from captivity, allegedly masterminded by their own countryman.

The victims were kidnapped and chained in a room at a resort in Bukit Tinggi, Pahang.

Gombak OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Rahim Abdullah said police were alerted after a Myanmar man lodged a report on Sunday that his younger brother had been kidnapped.

“The man claimed that his sibling was taken in Rawang while he was sending money back home to his family.

“We then formed a task force and investigations led us to the resort,” he said yesterday.

ACP Abdul Rahim said that when police raided the resort at around 1am yesterday, they found the brother and four other men.

“All of them were chained together and they claimed that they were fed only once a day.

“Further investigations revealed that they worked as labourers and were taken from Johor, Terengganu and Rawang,” he said, adding that they were aged between 16 and 40.

ACP Abdul Rahim said the room was used by a Myanmar man who worked for the resort’s maintenance department.

He said police arrested the Myanmar man in Shah Alam three hours later. “He is believed to be the mastermind behind the kidnappings.”

He said the suspect had been remanded to facilitate investigations under Section 3(1) of the Kidnapping Act 1961, which carries the mandatory death penalty upon conviction.

One of the victims, 23-year-old Nor Mohd, said he was kidnapped three days ago after a friend offered him a job in Bukit Tinggi.

“I went to Bukit Tinggi from Johor Baru and was kidnapped there. My family paid RM10,000 but I was still not released,” he told reporters who met him at the Gombak police district headquarters.

Beware of snatch thieves in a car

A couple of snatch thieves were in a car trying to catch their victim offguard.

In the incident, a woman was walking past the car which was waiting at an intersection when a man in the front passenger seat suddenly opened the door and tried to snatch her gold chain.

She put up a struggle and managed to fend off her attacker who ducked back into the car and sped off.

The incident, which happened in Desa Aman Puri, Kepong at about 12.30pm on Tuesday, was recorded by another motorist who had a camera mounted on the dashboard of his car.

Lim Kwee Han, the motorist, submitted a copy of the video to the Malaysian Crime Awareness Campaign (MCAC).

The MCAC uses its Facebook page to propagate crime awareness. Started about a year ago, it has some 60,000 likes.

The footage can be viewed at mob.com.my, the Metro Online Broadcast portal which offers news written by the public.

An official from the Sri Damansara police station said no report was lodged over the incident yet, and urged the victim to come forward.
