Parang-wielding men attack teen in front of house and drive off in Myvi
By AUSTIN CAMOENS
SUBANG JAYA: After driving home from classes one night, Eugene Wong parked his car outside his house, not realising that three men were observing his movements in another vehicle.
Eugene, 18, had stopped his Perodua Myvi outside the house at Jalan USJ13/5A here at about 10.30pm on Monday when a Perodua Viva passed by him slowly.
The car reversed suddenly as soon as Eugene got out of his car.
Eugene initially thought that the passing car belonged to a neighbour.
However, two men armed with parang jumped out of the car, hit Eugene on the head and demanded for his mobile phone, wallet and car keys.
In less than four minutes, the armed men drove off with his car and valuables just as neighbours rushed out to his aid.
His father, Wong Teck Heang, 53, said Eugene, the eldest of his three children, was traumatised by the experience.
“He did not just lose his car and valuables. They also got away with his laptop and college text books,” he said.
“He thought that the Perodua Viva belonged to our neighbour and let his guard down,” he said.
However, Teck Heang said he was relieved that his son only suffered a bump on the head.
He had bought the car for his son earlier this year.
Teck Heang said he had gone out to pick up his other son from tuition class at the time of the incident.
Four CCTVs installed in his home had captured the incident, he said.
“We have lodged a police report and handed the CCTV footage to the police,” he said.
Subang Jaya Deputy OCPD Supt Tan Ah Chua confirmed the case but no arrests had been made yet.
He urged those with information to contact the Selangor police hotline at 03-2052 9999 or the nearest police station.
