Caught on camera: Malaysian girl bashes man who tried to rob her

MALAYSIA - In a video circulating online, a woman who was robbed as she left her car was seen turning on her assailant in heroic fashion.

The incident that reportedly happened in Malaysia took place after she had parked her car in her driveway.

Two robbers on a motorcycle targeted her, and one slipped in past her house gate and tried to snatch her handbag.

The woman and the robber tussled for several seconds, until she suddenly attacked them.

She kneed him in the chest a couple of times, before pushing him on the ground and beating him up.

The helpless robber was eventually rescued by his accomplice, who dragged him away without loot - and his shoe - in hand.
