GEORGE TOWN: A car rental company has advised the public to be wary if their vehicles are rammed from behind by another vehicle late at night.
Kasina Baru (M) Sdn Bhd director Azhar Satar said one of the company’s employees was attacked and robbed at the Sprint Highway in Kuala Lumpur when the latter got down from the van he was driving after a pick-up knocked into the vehicle.
“He was transferring the company van from Penang to our branch at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport when the incident occurred at about 11.15pm on Nov 10.
“The robbers hit and kicked him despite there being busy traffic at that time,” Azhar said, adding that the robbers drove away the RM50,000 van.
Victim Rosli Abdullah, 42, said the robbers also took his wallet containing RM500, his mobile phone and personal identification documents.
He lodged a police report at Damansara police station.
Azhar said he was highlighting the case to alert the public.
“Should anyone ram into your car late at night, do not get down from your vehicle to check on the damages but drive to the nearest police station,” he said at a press conference at his office at Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah in Bayan Lepas yesterday.
