PETALING JAYA: A Malaysian student in Nottingham University was mugged by a trio of juveniles and then stabbed multiple times as he chased after the culprits in an attempt to recover his belongings, Astro Awani reported.
Ahmad Izat Ahmad Nazmi, an Industrial Economy student, was walking alone from his campus Monday evening when the boys, believed to be aged between eight and 14 years, came up to him and asked him for the time.
However, before he could answer, one of them took out a gun while the others whipped out pen knives, relieved him of his wallet, watch and mobile phone, and fled.
Ahmad Izat said although he could make out that it was a fake gun, he pleaded with them not to harm him.
"They took my wallet, they took my phone, they tried to take my watch and I was begging them, give me everything I need, like my student ID or whatever form of identification, so I can make a police report without being anonymous," he said, according to the TV station.
He ran after the boys and managed to grab one, and asked for his phone back. It was then that the other two boys began to stab him repeatedly.
Ahmad Izat said he punched one of the boys and kept hitting him, but the other two kept stabbing him.
Passers-by and residents in the area heard his pleas for help but ignored him until, five minutes into the attack, one of the boys agreed to return his phone if he stopped chasing them.
"One of them gave me my phone and all of them started to run again."
Ahmad Izat, however, began chasing them again to catch at least one, but he was drenched in his own blood and in pain.
A good Samaritan helped him to call the police, who took him to a hospital, where he needed 11 stitches for his wounds.
The case is now being investigated, according the station.
