On Sunday (21 August), a woman can be seen walking all alone in front of Wisma FGV in Chow Kit, KL. The incident is believed to have happened at around 8:22 pm.
In the video, the woman can be seen walking along the main road when two men on a motorcycle abruptly stopped next to her. One of the men then got off the motorcycle and began running towards the woman, while trying to snatch her belongings.
Several drivers and motorcyclists saw the incident and acted quickly to help the victim.
The brave woman can be seen holding onto her bags, and tries to reclaim her belongings while the mugger tries to get back on the motorcycle.
While all of this is happening, a delivery rider attempts to thwart the getaway by crashing his own motorcycle against the mugger’s motorcycle. Two cars and two other motorcycles can be seen stopping at the scene to help the woman.
The group of drivers were then seen surrounding the two muggers and confronting them.
In another tweet, the muggers are seen with two police officers. The victim is also pictured in the tweet, who appeared to be a foreign woman and carrying her backpack that the muggers tried to take away from her.
Netizens took to social media to praise the brave men, particularly the delivery rider for not holding back when helping the woman, “He’s a hero! He ramps into them without even thinking twice. The other men are amazing at stopping to help the woman.”
The video has since garnered over 237.1 thousand views and 7,011 likes at the time of writing.
You guys are amazing! Thank you for your bravery and selflessness for helping the helpless woman.
