Viral video shows senior citizen being robbed while on a walk in Malaysia

NIBONG TEBAL - A video clip showing a senior citizen being robbed of her jewellery worth RM200 (S$65.60) by two men while on her morning walk has gone viral.

The victim, 66, was with two friends, aged 70 and 78, when the men suddenly came out of a car and started chasing them at about 6.30am in Taman Tambun Indah, Simpang Ampat, on Monday.

Her friends stumbled to the ground and sustained minor injuries to their hands and knees.

Both were given treatment at a nearby clinic.

OCPD Supt Shafee Abd Samad said the victims were unable to identify the robbers as it was "quite dark" at the time.

"We managed to obtain a CCTV footage of the robbery but it was too blur to make out the registration number.

"The case is being investigated as causing hurt while committing a robbery under Section 394 of the Penal Code," he said yesterday.
