KUALA LUMPUR: A seven-year-old girl bravely jumped out of a vehicle to escape from a carjacker at AU3 in Keramat on Monday.
As a result of the jump from the vehicle, which had started moving, the girl sustained minor injuries in the waist, hands and feet, and bruises on her buttocks.
Ampang Jaya District Police Chief, ACP Khairuldin Saat said in the 12.30pm incident, the girl's father had left her in his Mitsubishi Triton with the engine running, near a workshop, before a man tried to hijack the vehicle.
He told Bernama that the man who was tall and thin, was believed to be a local, aged in his 30s and wearing a red striped t-shirt.
He was seen alighting from a grey Proton Persona car while talking on his handphone before getting away in the Mitsubishi Triton with the girl in it, Khairuldin said.
Khairuldin added that the father tried to stop the man from leaving the area with his vehicle and daughter, but was unsuccessful.
After the father lodged a report with the police at about 1pm, a police team was sent to the scene.
The girl was found about 700 metres from the location the vehicle was stolen. According to Khairuldin, several witnesses saw the girl jump from her father's vehicle.
Meanwhile, crime analyst Datuk Akhbar Satar reminded parents not to be complacent in looking after their children to prevent crimes from happening.
"Crimes happen because there is an opportunity for criminals...for as long as parents are complacent about their children's safety, incidences such as this will continue to happen even though the media continues to highlight these cases," he said. - Bernama
