PETALING JAYA: A video of two suspects attempting to rob a food delivery rider of his motorcycle at Phileo Damansara 2 here has gone viral.

The one-minute, 37-second video shows the delivery rider pulling into the entrance of an area, followed by two suspects on another motorcycle.

The victim gets off his motorcycle and seems to begin talking to the two suspects before the pillion rider hit him on the back of the head and threatens to hit him again with an unidentified object.

Moments later, the other suspect charges at the rider and attempts to ride off with the victim's motorcycle.

The victim then jumps on the suspect as he tries to ride away, and a struggle ensues between the three.
