KUALA LUMPUR: It was a wrong call made by a 42-year-old businessman when he answered a call of nature and was robbed of his car near Kampung Pinang Tambahan in Sungai Besi on Monday. 

Apart from being knocked unconscious, he lost four international passports, cheque books, a wristwatch, camera and other documents which were in the car. 

It was about 5am when he stopped his car at the side of the road to urinate. 

Just as he stepped out of the car, two men on a motorcycle came up, snatched his car keys before kicking him.  

The kick forced the businessman to fall into a drain and knocked unconscious.  

One of the robbers drove away with the victim’s car while the other fled on the motorcycle.  

A lorry driver who was passing by the road spotted the injured businessman about half-and-hour later and took him home. 

A Cheras police spokesman confirmed that a report had been lodged by the businessman. 

Those who have any information on the victim’s car, a Malaysian passport belonging to Hoo Chiong Tik, two Republic of China passports (one of which belongs to Bai Fu) and an Indonesian passport belonging to Isnanik, are urged to contact the Cheras police station. 

Alternatively they can contact Hoo at tel 019-215 9745 or 016-633 6 313.
