KOTA KINABALU - A mentally handicapped man became the victim of a carjacking while he was waiting for his father in their van.
The victim's father, who had left his 24-year-old son in the van when he stepped out to visit a hardware shop at 11.30am, Thursday, said he noticed the vehicle missing when he returned a few minutes later.
His son was, however, found several hours later by the roadside in Jalan Kobusak in Penampang, some 20km away.
Kota Kinabalu city police chief Assist Comm M.Chandra said police dispatched a team in search of the van and victim after the latter's father lodged a report.
ACP Chandra said the van and suspect, believed to be a Chinese man in his 30s, were, however, nowhere to be found.
