Gunshots fired at woman in Mercedes Benz in attempted Setapak robbery
KUALA LUMPUR: Two men fired gunshots at a woman in a Mercedes Benz in a robbery attempt at Jalan Teratai 2, Setapak, here yesterday.
The 30-year-old real estate agent, however, managed to escape unharmed.
The 5.30pm incident unfolded when a man wearing a motorcycle helmet approached the victim’s car while it was stationary, and knocked on the car door’s window with a pistol.
“The man instructed the victim to get out of her Mercedes Benz, but she ignored him. Instead, she reversed and sped off. That’s when she heard a gunshot.
“(As she continued) to flee, another man on a motorcycle tried to intercept her. In her haste to escape, the victim struck the motorcycle. Then she heard a second shot,” said Wangsa Maju police chief Superintendent Mohamad Roy Suhaimi Sarif.
It is learnt that a bullet was later found lodged in one of the car’s front tyres.
He added that the victim contacted a friend as soon as she arrived at a safe area.
“The victim and her friend then lodged a police report. Our initial investigation revealed that the victim’s friend is the car owner.
