Ball buster

Check out this story from The Malay Mail. It's in the other local newspaper but they didn't provide as much gory details as the Malay Mail did.

AMPANG: Two snatch thieves had presumed that a woman would be easy prey when they snatched her handbag from her car's passenger seat this morning before attempting to make a quick getaway.

However, they did not count on the woman getting into her vehicle and giving chase.

The end result left one snatch thief dead and another seriously injured when the thieves' motorcycle collided with the woman's car in their haste to escape.

This was the drama that played out at 8.40am today, when the woman, a 28-year-old architect, was closing the gate of her home in Jalan Mega 11, Taman Megajaya, Pandan Indah.

She had left her handbag on the front passenger seat of her Toyota Vios when she exited the car.

To her shock, two men on a motorcycle appeared and opened her car door before taking away the bag.

A struggle ensued with the suspects, who kicked her before revving their bike and escaping. Undeterred, the woman leapt into her car and gunned the engine, intent on giving chase.

Her determination paid off when she encountered the suspects at a road junction in Jalan Mega 7.

By that time, the suspects had panicked when they realised she was on their tail and that the road they were on led to a dead end.

It is believed that the suspects made a U-turn and in their bid to escape, inadvertently rammed headlong into the incoming car, throwing both men off the bike.

Ampang Jaya police chief Assistant Commissioner Amiruddin Jamaluddin said the impact of the fall immediately killed one of the men, a 34-year-old Indonesian.

So great was the impact that it threw both men into a nearby drain.

It was learnt that the deceased's trousers were ripped to shreds. A piece of meat, believed to be part of his testicles, were found stuck on the front of the car.

"His pillion rider, a 25-year-old Indonesian, meanwhile sustained severe injuries. He was immediately rushed to Ampang Hospital for treatment," Amirudin told The Malay Mail this morning.

He said initial checks showed that both men had valid travel documents. However, their motorcycle is believed to be a stolen vehicle.

"We are now investigating the case under gang robbery and causing death due to reckless driving," he said.

Part of his testicles?! Holy crap! The lady really busted his balls man!

The accompanying report below:

AMPANG: "She acted on instinct," says Mahyudin Zakaria, the father of a 28-year-old architect who had driven her car to pursue two snatch thieves on a motorcycle, a chase that ended with one robber dead and the other injured.

Mahyudin, 59, a former police officer, said he had just bade farewell to his daughter, Siti Aishah, about 8.40am yesterday when she was leaving for work from their house at Jalan Mega 11 in Taman Megajaya, Pandan Indah here, when he heard her scream for help.

"One of the snatch thieves had kicked her when she tried to stop them from taking her handbag from the front passenger seat of her car," he said.

"She was determined to track the thieves down and she did."

The snatch thieves found themselves cornered and crashed into Siti Aishah's car. Both were thrown off their motorcycle and fell into a drain.

"Although I did not know what had happened at the time, I followed my daughter in my car and by the time I reached her, her car was stalled on the road and I saw a motorcycle near it.

"I ran to my daughter's car and was relieved to find her safe although she was traumatised and had scratches on her hand," said Mahyudin.

"I checked the drain and saw one of the suspects bleeding while his accomplice was dead. I am grateful Siti Aishah is safe."

Siti Aishah is the third of Mahyudin's five children. The family has been residing at Taman Megajaya since 2000.

"Our house is actually in a quiet area and snatch thefts rarely happen here," said Mahyudin, who commended the police for responding quickly.

Ampang Jaya district police chief ACP Amiruddin Jamaluddin said the two men were Indonesians. The dead man was aged 25 and his body was taken to Hospital Ampang. The other man, 34, is undergoing treatment at the same hospital's emergency ward.

The case is being investigated under Section 395 of the Penal Code for gang robbery and also Section 41 of the Road Transport Act 1987 for reckless driving.

There are more gory pictures if you go to the links above. There's a picture of the dead guy upside down in a drain. I wonder how the accident happened, how the heck did his balls get stuck on the hood of the car?
