Beware! Robbers now armed with tasers, police say
GEORGE TOWN, Sept 8 2015 — Robbers are resorting to using taser guns to attack their victims, police said.
City OCPD Mior Faridlatrash Wahid said athough only one case had been reported in George Town, a number of cases had been reported in the state. He would not reveal the actual number or where the incidents took place.
The taser guns are believed to have been brought in from Thailand.
“Robbers have gone advanced and people need to be more careful,” he told reporters at the city police headquarters in Jalan Patani yesterday.
On Sunday, a 53-year-old woman was robbed by two men using a taser gun at Taman Brown in Gelugor at 5am.
She lost her identity card, two ATM cards, RM200 and a mobile phone, worth a total of about RM2,000.
Although he did not disclose the actual voltage of the taser gun used, Mior said the victim suffered temporary weakness of the limbs but had recovered. She did not seek medical treatment.
Police have identified two men in their early 20s as the main suspects in the case. They are believed to be moving around the city on a Honda Dash motorcycle.
“The one who tased the victim was the pillion rider. They approached the victim and greeted her in a friendly manner, before tasing her,” Mior said.
