Yet Another Lone Woman Attacked & Robbed

Monday June 25, 2012
KUALA LUMPUR: Lone women approaching their cars appear to be the target of armed robbers.
In the past few weeks, there have been several cases of unaccompanied woman who were attacked by armed assailants.
The most recent is that of a woman who nearly had her finger severed by an armed robber near Taman Tun Dr Ismail here. The incident occurred at around 6.30am yesterday.
“The man who was of dark complexion brandished a knife and demanded for her valuables and handbag,” said Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid.
“The woman had stopped in front of a friend’s house in Jalan Datuk Sulaiman when she was approached by the man on a motorcycle.”
ACP Wan Abdul Bari said a scuffle broke out between the two and her finger was almost severed when he tried to slash her. He got away with her handbag eventually.
Just 32 hours earlier, another woman was attacked and robbed about 9km away while walking in the carpark of a mall here.
“We received a report that the woman in her 20s was slashed on her head when she was about to get into her car at the Mid Valley Megamall on Friday,” he said.
He said the woman had just alighted the lift near the cineplex at around 10pm when she was approached by a man armed with a sharp object.
“She struggled with the man who tried to grab her handbag but she relented when the man slashed her on the head,” he said, adding that the woman lodged the police report at around 4am yesterday.
ACP Wan Abdul Bari said police were investigating the cases under Section 395 of the Penal Code for armed robbery and urged anyone with information to come forward.
Mid Valley City Sdn Bhd’s management said the woman was sent to the University Malaya Medical Centre in an ambulance 25 minutes after the incident. She was discharged the next morning. 
“Her loss consists of an iPhone, a wallet with cash, the victim’s identity card, her driving licence and bank cards,” it said.
CCTV footage of the attack and robbery had been sent to the authorities, it said.
The cases of women being targeted by robbers came to light when Internet marketeer Chin Xin-Ci posted on Facebook about her attack and near abduction by two men at a shopping mall car park on May 27.

Car Security Tips - The Common Sense

By Michelle Krebs

A security system can do only so much. Despite the new gadgets and available technology, common sense remains your best defense against car thieves.
Auto theft experts from the National Insurance Crime Bureau and the Highway Loss Data Institute recommend a number of common sense, no-cost measures to ensure the well being of you and your vehicle:
  • Remove your keys from the ignition. This is common sense, but not doing so is an open invitation to car thieves.
  • Never leave your car running unattended — not even in your driveway — no matter how quick the errand.
  • Don't leave spare keys in the car or in hiding spots; experienced thieves know even the best hiding places.
  • Lock your doors and close your windows.
  • Keep your registration card in your wallet or purse instead of the glove compartment. Make photocopies to keep at home.
  • Park your locked vehicle in a locked garage. If you have no garage, consider investing in a secured parking area. As with parking in any commercial lot or garage, leave only the ignition key with the attendant. If you must park on the street, select safe, well-lit areas and park with the front wheels turned sharply to the curb. This makes it difficult for thieves to tow your car. In the driveway, park facing the street so anyone tampering with the car is more noticeable. Put the emergency brake on and leave the transmission in Park. Manual transmissions should be left in gear.
  • Use paint or an indelible marker to put the vehicle identification number under the engine hood, on the trunk lid and on the battery. The VIN is found on the dashboard on the driver's side of the car.
  • Lock personal property, especially valuable items such as cell phones and cameras, in the trunk or hide them where they're not visible to passersby. If you lock items in the trunk, do so in a secluded area.
And don't forget, as an added last point of defence, get your car equip with GPS Tracking system. Visit Us at : www.altair.com.my

Affordable Teen GPS Tracker

teen drivingTeenagers in this era live in a world much more complex than 50, 25 or even 10 years ago. Today, teenagers are exposed to a television-centered society that seemingly rewards and sensationalizes bad behavior, causing many teens to experiment with drugs, alcohol or illegal prescription medicines. Throw in the already daunting fact that teens are often guided by peer-pressure to assist in the decision making process, and the recipe can be disastrous. Therefore, it is no wonder why so many parents feel the desire to do more to protect their teens. Desire to more closely observe behavior. Desire to call upon technology to aid in parenting.
GPS tracker technology was once a form of surveillance that only assisted in business fleet management, but has now quickly become one of the popular tools that parents use to oversee teen driving. "GPS vehicle tracking is extremely useful for parents because the technology provides concrete information about where a teen is hanging out, what speeds they are driving and how long they stayed at a friend's house", stated a personal tracking specialist at GPS Tracker Shop. "By reviewing the GPS vehicle tracker data, parents can determine if their teen is lying, driving dangerously or going to places they are not supposed to be. All of this GPS tracking information can be used to improve teen safety and family security." 

GPS Tracker Recommend For Parents

After a parent has researched all of the positive benefits that GPS trackers can provide, the next step is figuring out what type of tracking device is best. The first thing a parent will need to determine is whether they desire a real-time GPS or a data logger.
