PETALING JAYA: Two car theft syndicate members crashed their car into a mamak stall in their haste to escape the police who were hot on their trail.

Policemen fired three warning shots at the fleeing suspects in Persiaran Taman Mawar Puchong at 6.30pm yesterday.

A woman was injured when the suspects lost control of their car and hit a drain before crashing into the stall.

Serdang Deputy OCPD Deputy Supt Lam Chien Fei said one of the suspects, 25, was detained on the spot.

Another accomplice escaped on foot.

“Earlier, we spotted the suspects in a stolen Perdana V6 at the Awan Besar rest area along the Kesas Highway and gave chase.”

DSP Lam said the woman sustained minor injuries and had been sent to the University Malaya Medical Centre for treatment.

It is learnt that the suspect who had escaped earlier was spotted in a nearby housing estate some three hours later.

Witness Swah Chee, 74, saw two police cars in pursuit of the culprits.

“Moments later, the car rammed into a mamak stall which had several customers,” he said.
