PETALING JAYA: A 34-year-old businessman managed to recover his stolen Honda CRV five minutes after he was robbed by parang wielding men in PJS 9/16, Bandar Sunway, thanks to the immobiliser installed in his vehicle. 

In the 10.30pm incident on Monday, the businessman parked his car outside his home to open the front gate when three parang-wielding men ordered him out of the car. 

“The robbers pushed him aside and got into the car before driving off behind a Proton Perdana V6, driven by two accomplices,” a source said. 

When the robbers were out of sight, the businessman activated his immobiliser through a remote control.  

The businessman then alerted the district police headquarters and within minutes, a police patrol car arrived at his house. 

“Police searched the nearby housing area with him and spotted his car in Jalan 9/5 in Bandar Sunway.  

The robbers had abandoned the car in the middle of the road when the ignition was cut off. They however escaped with the businessman’s handphone worth about RM300,” the sources said. 

In an unrelated incident on Monday, two armed men stole a brand new car belonging to a 33-year-old woman, after holding her at gunpoint in Jalan 2/34, Taman Perindustrian Puchong Utama.
