Latest Robbery/Car- Jack Tactic

Dear friends,

The latest tactic used by robbers to stop you while driving and to rob, rape
or slash you has come to my attention after a friend of mine was trapped in
this situation.


My good friend was driving along Kesas Highway with his wife just after
Plaza Tol Puchong towards Kajang last Sunday 23rd December at around 11 pm
after attending a dinner function at his relative's house in Bandar Sunway.

Suddenly, a motorbike overtook them and the pillion rider threw 2 eggs
towards his car windscreen. Within seconds, his whole windscreen was smeared
with the messy broken eggs. His immediate reflex action was to turn on the
windscreen wipers which quickly covered the whole surface and blurred his

So he immediately slowed his car and brought it to a halt along the
emergency lane.

Then he got out of his car and was trying to wipe and wash the windscreen
while his wife was seated inside the car. All of a sudden a Proton Satria
stopped behind his car and 3 guys came running towards him with Samurai
swords screaming at him to surrender his car and wallet.

Luckily my friend, who is attached to the police CID, managed to pull his
gun out and fire two warning shots in the air. The 3 guys ran helter skelter
back into their car and drove off at a very high speed.

He called up for assistance and was told the getaway car had a false number

Apparently, this tactic has been used quite often in the latest string of
road side robberies especially with lady drivers or men driving alone or
with women and small children.

So please, should you encounter such a situation, REMEMBER to make sure:

1) Not to turn on your car windscreen wipers.

2) Continue driving, with whatever available vision, to the nearest petrol
station, police station, 7 Eleven store or any other crowded or brightly
lit place to attract attention.

Please forward this information to friends and family members.

Be Safe
