Furious man rams car into robbers' bikes

PARIT BUNTAR, MALAYSIA: A band of robbers picked the wrong man to mess with yesterday.

He gave chase and rammed three of their motorcycles with his car.

Mr Mohamed Mazis Mohamed Mokhtar, 25, was with his wife Atiqah Nordin, 25, and three friends in Taman Murni at 10.15am when they were set upon by four men.

One man, who was armed with a parang, placed the weapon on Ms Atiqah's neck and demanded they hand over all their valuables.

ENRAGED

When the victims stood their ground, the robbers became enraged and a fight broke out.

Mr Mazis said one of his friends was slashed on the head with a parang.

"The robbers managed to grab a bracelet, a couple of gold rings, two handbags and two wristwatches before fleeing on four motorcycles," he said.

Mr Mazis, however, was not about to let them go without a fight.

He got into his car and gave chase before ramming three of the four motorcycles at a junction.

Passers-by, seeing the commotion, gave their support and together with Mr Mazis, apprehended the men.

Kerian police chief Superintendent Omar Bakhtiar Yaacob confirmed the incident and said investigations are still ongoing. - NEW STRAITS TIMES
