A FARMER and two friends prevented thieves from escaping with his cows by forming a “mini blockade”, reported Sinar Harian.

The thieves initially shoved the animals into the back seat of a Perodua Bezza in Port Dickson, Negri Sembilan, on Sunday.

Farmer Chukuni Ali, 63, and his friends placed rocks in the middle of the road before parking his motorcycle there to block the exit.

“We stood there and they tried to run us over, but we dodged their car.

“They then knocked the motorcycle over and swerved to the left before falling into the ditch,” he said.

Following a tussle, the duo managed to escape in a van that was waiting at the main road.

Port Dickson OCPD Supt Adzli Abu Shah said police were on the hunt for the suspects.

> Actress Haliza Misbun said she does not want roles where she has to play a mother or an elder sister, reported Harian Metro.

The 43-year-old said it was hard for actresses aged over 40 to get roles.

“When an actress reaches 40, she’ll usually be given the role of a sister or mother. I want filmmakers to get out of that mindset,” she said.

Haliza added that when she was not busy acting, she would tend to her real estate business.

“I can’t just sit at home all day, I have a family to feed,” she said.

> A woman was wedged between the driver’s seat and the steering wheel of her car for over 40 minutes following a crash on Saturday, reported Kosmo!.

The accident occurred on Satur­day evening in Sabak Bernam when her Proton Juara collided with a lorry.

The victim’s sister, who was riding shotgun, managed to exit the vehicle and sought help from passers-by.

Fire and Rescue Department officer Muhamad Anuwar Ithni said both victims were taken to Tengku Ampuan Jemaah Hospital nearby for treatment.
