Agent taken for terror ride at Bukit Gasing


PETALING JAYA: A real estate agent was taken for an hour-long terror ride by a man armed with a weapon that looked like a pistol.

The attacker, who wore a cap, bundled the woman into her car and demanded cash in return for her release.

The 51-year-old lady, who wished to remain anonymous, said she had gone to Bukit Gasing for a hike with her friends in the morning.

“It was around 8.50am when I walked back to my Mazda CX-5 when the man suddenly sprang out and ambushed me with what looked like a gun.

“He forced me into my car and drove off, demanding RM150,000 in order to release me,” she told a Chinese daily on Thursday.

The real estate agent said she told the robber that she did not have that much money.

She said the robber dumped her by the side of the New Pantai Expressway about an hour later and drove off in her month-old car.

The woman sought the assistance of another motorist to go to the Petaling Jaya police headquarters to lodge a report.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said they were investigating the case as car theft and abduction.

“The attacker was holding a weapon that looks like a gun,” he said. “We are tracking his whereabouts and the stolen car.”

Those with information on the case can contact the police hotline at 03-2052 9999 or visit the nearest police station.
