KUALA LUMPUR: Two snatch thieves fell off their Yamaha 125Z motorcycle after snatching a female teenager’s handbag on Jalan Kuari, Cheras, here yesterday.
In the 9.30am incident, the two, aged 18 and 23, crashed into a car driven by a man who chased after them following the 19-year-old victim’s cries for help.
Cheras district police chief ACP Chong Kok Sin said the suspects sustained facial injuries and fractured limbs as well as other body injuries.
“Investigations revealed that the motorcycle used in the incident had been reported missing in Cheras,” he said when contacted by Bernama, adding that the suspects were taken to the Ampang Hospital for treatment.
Further investigations revealed that the rider had nine criminal records while the pillion rider had eight, added Chong.
In an unrelated case in KINABATANGAN, a Pakistani debt collector was found shot dead on Jalan Ladang KJS Sungai Melian in Tongod on Friday.
Rozimand Sherin Khan, 33, had gunshot wounds on the neck and shoulder. There were also injuries on the head and right foot. His motorcycle was missing.
A lorry driver passing through the area stumbled on the body at about 4.30pm in the bushes off a road-shoulder before alerting the foreman of an oil palm plantation, who in turn contacted the Tongod police station.
Kinabatangan police chief Supt A Sahak Rahmat said Rozimand had earlier entered the Kampung Sungai Imbak Tongod area about 1.30pm on a motorcycle to collect debts from workers at the Ladang KJS Sungai Melian farm housing area.
“As police did not find the victim’s motorcycle, backpack and mobile phone, we suspect he was robbed before he was killed,” added Sahak.
The body was sent to the Duchess of Kent Hospital in Sandakan.
