Video of alleged supermarket thieves in action making rounds on social media

KOTA KINABALU: A CCTV footage showing a group of people casually carting away sundry items from a supermarket in Putatan near here is being circulated on social media.

The less than 12-minute recording showed several men and women allegedly entering the shop in turns, on the pretence of searching for goods, but ended up leaving with baskets and packets of items.

The alleged thefts took place at about 8.30pm on Feb 21 without the presence of a security guard.

Penampang district police chief Deputy Supt Azmir Abdul Razak said on Thursday that investigations into the video came after a supervisor of the cooperative-run supermarket lodged a police report three days after the incident.

“Initial investigations found that one of the ‘shoppers’ had kept the shopkeeper occupied by asking a lot of questions about the goods, while the others took turns to steal,” he said.

“The supervisor only lodged a police report on Feb 24 after listing down the missing items which consisted mostly of shampoos,” he said.

Pictures of injured Primary Two schoolboy cause stir on social media

zaa

KOTA KINABALU, Sept 23 — Photos of a primary schoolboy with a patch of blood on his head, allegedly taken after he was abused by a teacher, has been circulating on social media, inciting anger from local residents who want the teacher involved to be punished.

The photos, being shared on social media like Facebook and WhatsApp yesterday and today claim the boy, Vincent Alfonskia from SK Kitobu in Inanam, some 15km from here, was “slapped, ear pulled, and had his head smashed on a table” by his teacher.

According to the victim’s father, Alfonskia Petrus, who lodged a police report this morning, the headmaster of the school called him at 11am saying his son was being treated at the hospital and had received three stitches.

The injuries were the result of a Bahasa Malaysia teacher punishing the pupil for not finishing his homework.

HOWEVER, THE CLAIM OF THE FATHER IS REJECTED BY THE SABAH EDUCATION DIRECTOR HIMSELF!

Sabah Education Department director Datuk Jame Alip said claims that the teacher had abused the pupil were false and denied any wrongdoing on the teacher’s part.

“After personally investigating the matter at the school and speaking to the teacher and the victim’s classmates, we found that the teacher was holding the boy’s ear but he tried to pull away, causing him to lose balance and accidentally knocked his head on the table,” said Jame.

He added that the victim’s parents had “accepted our explanation”.

KOTA KINABALU: An unemployed man shot himself in front of his wife-to-be’s house in Sabah’s northern Kota Marudu district on Monday, after an aunt took his 17-year-old girlfriend to Kota Kinabalu in an apparent attempt to avoid the marriage.

Lily Sulaiman, 27, died after shooting himself with a homemade shotgun at Kampung Patiu at about 11.30pm on June 9, said Kota Marudu district police chief Supt Mohd Isa Yusuf on Friday. No foul play was suspected.

He said the man, who was unemployed, was seen as unsuitable for the girl as she was still too young. They had been dating for about three years.

It was learnt that a day before the incident, Lily and his girlfriend were preparing items and money for the dowry.

The girl’s aunt had brought her to the city later the same day on June 8.

Lily was supposed to be officially engaged and marry the girl on June 9 if there were no objections from the family.

He only learnt that the girl had been taken to Kota Kinabalu the night before.

“He was very heartbroken,” Supt Mohd Isa said.

Kota Kinabalu police solve five robbery and theft cases with latest arrests

KOTA KINABALU: Police have arrested a total of 11 people and believe they have solved at least five cases of robbery and snatch theft cases to have occurred in the city over the past two months.

Kota Kinabalu city police chief Assist Comm Jauteh Dikun said the most recent arrest was of a group of seven people in connection with a car break-in and vehicular theft.

“The modus operandi of this group, aged between 22 and 35, is that they first break into a person’s vehicle before making off with the victim’s handbags or other items such as keys and documents to see if they can get something else,” he said on Friday.

Jauteh said that once the group obtained the address of the victim, they would appear at their homes pretending to be agents appointed by the bank, and claim that they had been instructed to tow the victim’s vehicle away.

KOTA KINABALU: DAP’s Likas assemblyman Junz Wong is under fire for his goof up over his move to highlight a non-existent robbery of a 20-year-old woman purportedly at the Suria Sabah mall.

His former DAP colleagues are demanding that the party haul him up for disciplinary action, while the Barisan Nasional and Sabah Progressive Party accused him of being irresponsible for putting the girl in a difficult situation.

Wong, who had highlighted the alleged incident involving the woman that was not reported to police, but went viral on the social media, apologised to Suria Sabah for his statements after the girl claimed that the incident never occurred.

The girl, who just completed Form Six, only lodged a report on the alleged incident on Jan 7 following the media uproar.

She also publicly said the incident never occurred and that the cut to her wrist was self-inflicted.

SAPP supreme council member Chia Mui Lee accused Wong of turning a private matter into an embarassing public affair in his quest to be a hero by citing the “Suria Girl Attack” incident.

KOTA KINABALU: The increasing number of night-time robberies in the Central Business Center (CBC) in Kota Kinabalu City is causing urbanites to feel uneasy.

A recent Facebook posting of a robbery at well lit Suria Sabah complex basement by Likas assemblyman Junz Wong has raised more concerns about the authority’s effectiveness in keeping the city area safe.

“The illegal immigrant attacked her from behind and tried to snatch her handbag. She resisted and sustained two cuts on her hand and thigh.

REPLY BY SURIA SABAH SHOPPING MALL

Dear Shoppers and our Beloved Public,Following the Facebook account of YB Mr. Junz Wong on the alleged bloody robbery on a 20-year old school girl that took place around 19:10pm on the 6 January 2014 at the basement (Lower Ground Floor, toilet “A”) area of Suria Sabah, and that the victim claimed to have sustained two deep cuts on her hand and thigh as per the photos below, our management have conducted our own thorough investigation as below.We have interviewed the staff who was manning toilet “A” at Lower Ground floor, interviewed the tenants of the surrounding shops (i.e. Watson’s, Adidas Neo, Grace One, Guardian, Payless, and Tong’s) also studied the CCTV footages carefully. From the CCTV, it makes one wonder whether or not this incident had actually happened. If this incident had happened, the victim would have reported the matter to the management of the mall immediately, or the incident would have been witnessed by the staff who was manning the toilet and also the tenants at the nearby shops at the material time.To support our finding, we are pleased to share the CCTV footages of the alleged time and place where the alleged incident took place for the public to view. Please see the details below.From the entire CCTV recording, there was no recorded footage of any commotion, including the claims of “chasing and robbing” of any kind.We found a group of shoppers, 1 young guy and 4 young girls that looked like around the age of late teens or early twenties. We found one of the girls with a bandage on her left wrist with her group of friends in the CCTV. For ease of reference, we shall refer to the girl with the bandage as “Vic”.We are perplexed by the conduct of the said traumatized victim because such a conduct is not consistent with a person traumatized by the incident of robbery or assault that was claimed to have taken place.It was also reported and confirmed that she went to Permai Clinic for treatment however she was seen to go back into Suria Sabah again at around 20.00pm on the same day. This is not consistent with the conduct of a person who has just been robbed and assaulted.We hope that the public will look at the CCTV and make your own judgement.Suria Sabah Shopping Mall has suffered negative publicity since the news of this alleged incident was widely spread on Facebook, Whatsapp, and subsequently various newspapers, thus this response from our management.Thank YouYours Sincerely,
Suria Sabah Shopping Mall Management

KK shooting spree could be “grand design,” says deputy defence minister

KOTA KINABALU: The incident in which six youths went on a shooting spree at 25 premises in the city on Friday was possibly a “grand design,” said Deputy Defence Minister Datuk Abdul Rahim Bakri.

“It could be a grand design to instil fear in our people. They (the youths) knew what they were doing. But we are lucky, at least, because their images were captured on CCTV,” he told reporters after visiting the ‘Wawasan’ National Service Training Camp in Papar, about 45km from here.

Abdul Rahim said he would leave it to the police to conduct the investigation on the incident.

Sabah opposition politicians hit out at police for blaming shootings on naughty teens

BY EILEEN NG
January 13, 2014

Questions have arisen over the coordinated shooting spree in Sabah which the police have blamed on “naughty teenagers”.

Opposition politicians lambasted the men in blue for their cavalier remark, saying that the simultaneous attacks looked too well planned to be the work of mischievous youngsters who had apparently fired marbles with air-rifles at the glass doors of various premises in the eastern state.

PKR’s national deputy secretary general Darell Leiking said the police should look seriously into the shooting spree as it was the talk of town and all kinds of theories and speculation were circulating.

“What concerns me is that the attacks look too systematic. A lot of people in Sabah are asking whether this could be a criminal act instead of a prank by naughty teenagers,” he said.

State Reform Party (STAR) chairman Datuk Dr Jeffrey Kitingan (pic) poured cold water over the police’s initial findings, saying that the attacks were too organised to be the work of teenagers.

He also questioned the timing of the attack, coming on the back of the current religious dispute between Muslims and Christians over the use of the word Allah during worship as well as the Sulu Sultanate claim of ownership of Sabah.

Sabah DAP chief Jimmy Wong also has his doubts, noting that the modus operandi seemed to be too precised and well planned.

“I doubt teenagers are so free that they would go around creating such trouble,” he said.

He claimed that from the pictures that had been circulating, the troublemakers looked more like criminals than youngsters.

Kota Kinabalu police chief Assistant Commissioner Jauteh Jikun said the incidents were the work of “budak nakal” (naughty boys) while Sabah police commissioner Datuk Hamza Taib said Sabah police had also set up a special team, led by its CID chief SAC Omar Mammah, to investigate the case from all aspects and to set up roadblocks to find the culprits.

He had said initial investigations confirmed that the shooting incident was the work of mischievous teenagers who were firing marbles with air-rifles at the glass doors of the affected premises.

KOTA KINABALU: A photograph showing two individuals being arrested by police, which is being widely circulated over the social media and messaging services are not related to the shootings here.

Sabah police Criminal Investigation Department chief Senior Asst Comm Omar Mammah said the two men were suspects in a theft case and had nothing to do with the shooting of more than 30 business premises here and in Penampang and Inanam early Saturday.

He said police are still carrying out investigations to identify the actual suspects.

“The public should not get carried away with this case and believe what is being said or published over social media,” he said.

KOTA KINABALU: Three groups of men dressed in black and wearing hoods went on a shooting spree here, attacking about 30 establishments including hotels, banks and restaurants.

There was panic in Sabah as word spread that establishments in Kota Kinabalu, Luyang, Inanam and Penampang were hit by the wave of shootings, raising the spectre of another incursion like the one in Lahad Datu last year.

Glass panes and doors of the targeted hotels, shopping malls, banks and fast food outlets were riddled with bullet holes or shattered in the shooting between midnight on Friday and 1am yesterday. Luckily, there were no injuries or casualties because the attack happened so late at night.

At least six people in two 4WD vehicles and a car are believed to be responsible, firing air guns and using ball bearings as bullets.

A CCTV footage taken from a budget hotel at Damai in Luyang gave an indication on who the shooters were.

The footage showed two menacing-looking men holding what appears to be a firearm rushing away from the scene. One was wearing a black shirt with a surgical mask while the other wore a cap and hooded sweater. Both were in slim fit jeans.

People began posting photographs of smashed window panes and glass doors on social network sites like Facebook with news spreading that Kota Kinabalu and neighbouring Penampang had come under “attack” by unknown groups.

“What is happening? Why is this happening to our city?” Julia Yap said on Facebook as people advised each other to play safe by staying home.

Although police have said it was a case of mischief-making by a group of youths, residents here were not taking any chances.

“I am not allowing my children out to town today. I don’t know what is happening, it could be dangerous,” said a mother in a public chat box.

KOTA KINABALU: Police have ruled out the Kota Kinabalu ‘shooting spree’ was in any way linked to Sulu armed groups or the ongoing Lahad Datu intrusion trial.

The shooting at more than 20 establishments, including hotels and banks between midnight and 1am Saturday, was the work of at least six people in three cars using airguns and marbles as bullets, said Kota Kinabalu police chief Asst Comm Jauteh Jikun.

“I urge the public not to panic. This is the work of budak nakal (juveniles),’’ he told a press conference at 1pm.

Crime spree in KK streets

Robberies and muggings in and around Kota Kinabalu’s central business district puts City Hall in bad light.

KOTA KINABALU: The increasing number of night-time robberies in the Central Business Center (CBC) in Kota Kinabalu City is causing urbanites to feel uneasy.

A recent Facebook posting of a robbery at well lit Suria Sabah complex basement by Likas assemblyman Junz Wong has raised more concerns about the authority’s effectiveness in keeping the city area safe.

In his posting Wong wrote “a girl at her early 20s, who just completed Form 6, was robbed at Suria Sabah Mall basement toilet on Jan 6,Monday at 7.10 pm.

“The illegal immigrant attacked her from behind and tried to snatch her handbag. She resisted and sustained two cuts on her hand and thigh.

“Luckily a couple came out from the toilet and scared off the robber and he ran off without any valuables.”

Wong said the victim, who declined to be named, went over to Permai Clinic for treatments after the attempted robbery.

Another Facebook user Alison Chew shared her traumatic experience of being robbed of her handbag by two men while shopping at Metrojaya Suria on 2014 New Year Day.

She believed she was targeted because she was holding a baby and was focused on looking at a bed sheet.

The thief’s modus operandi was to push the bed sheet on the floor to distract her while his accomplice grabbed her purse and took off.

Luckily for Alison, her sister managed to snap photos of the man and shared it on her Facebook page in order to warn others.

But the recent incident at Suria Sabah complex has led urbanites to question the effectiveness of the City Hall’s security measures.

Few months ago, it was reported that a female Chinese tourist was robbed of her passport, cash and credit card behind CIMB bank just a block away from the Sabah Tourism Board head office at 4am.

“It’s exactly the same back street spot where another robbery took place five months ago,” according to the general manager of the hotel where the victim was staying.

No. This is not my friend!
aaKK people:
Please watch out for this man when u r out and about! He and an accomplice stole my handbag while I was shopping at Metrojaya Suria on New Year’s Day. Happy new Year to me NOT!
I believe I was targeted because I was with a baby and was focused onlooking at bedsheets. There were two of them. According to witnesses, the man in the photo distracted me by pushing the bedsheets onto the floor. While I kindly picked them up, another man took off with my handbag which was
hanging on my son’s stroller!
My fit and good looking sister cum bodyguard, and a very kind man gave the man in the photo a big chase for hundreds of metres, all the way to the philipino’s market, whilst the shopping centre security guards, plenty of them, ran in slow motion -.-, which is unsurprising, as any tom dick and harry can be a security guard here. And according to police, some are thieves themselves. thank you, thank you security guards, thank you very much.
Neways, back to the story, the 2 thieves split ways-seemed well planned. The one with my bag(unfortunately), was believed to have taken off in a boat to the nearby Gaya island where all the illegit squatters reside!!! Grrrr….
My sister and the kind man ran after the other unfit thief who stopped running because he ran out of breath.Hence, he, according to my heroin sister, brandished his belt and a knife, dared my sister and her only ‘kaki’ to go into the philipino market with him(obviously that’s where his own people were and they are well known be violent)I have gone to the police to file a report. He asked me if I would like an investigation. OF COURSE!!! I told him it’s not because I want my belongings back, it’s because I do not want this to happen to anyone else. This must stop!Photo: courtesy of my brave sister who is a long distance runner.
Note: he is holding a pink phone which in my opinion, is STOLEN TOO!!!
