SHAH ALAM: Police have applauded the bravery of a teacher who rammed his car into fleeing burglars, killing one of them, after they burgled his neighbour's home in Kota Warisan on Thursday.
Deputy Selangor Police Chief Deputy Comm Datuk Abdul Rahim Jaafar said the man, who he declined to name, acted swiftly and bravely by chasing the four robbers on two motorcycles to a traffic light junction in Jalan Dengkil-Banting and ramming into two of them to stop them escaping.
"His actions are exemplary and I congratulate him. It goes to show that without the public's help, we can never root out crime completely," he said.
DCP Abdul Rahim said that the yet-unidentified suspect who died is believed to be a foreigner in his 30s.
Investigations show his motorcycle had fake number plates and the chassis number tampered with.
The four suspects, armed with parangs, barged into a house here and stole RM300,000 worth of jewellery before escaping on two motorcycles.
The teacher witnessed the men leaving and pursued them in his four-wheel-drive at around 10am Thursday.
The suspect died on the spot, while his accomplices fled on the other motorcycle.
