Shocking News

My colleague and I walked into the office after we had our breakfast this morning. My boss was already in his room. A few minutes later he came out from his room and told both of us that another colleague had called this morning to say her handbag was snatched this morning. The snatch thief ran off with her handbag together with her identity card, ATM card, mobile phone, cash and other items in her bag. She is on emergency leave today to sort out some matters following the dreadful incident. We were upset that such a thing could happen to her.

I managed to find out more about her bad experience when she called just now. It was a quick conversation and according to her the robber who came in a motorbike robbed her right in front of her house this morning when she was leaving for office. The robber whom she said looked like a Malay slapped her face and snatched her handbag. Her brother dashed out immediately and chased after him but was unsuccessful. Thank god she wasn’t hurt during that time.

Snatch thieves going around in broad daylight stealing and running off with women’s handbags are really rampant nowadays. Whilst we try our best to be careful and alert to our surroundings these snatch thieves just caught us unaware sometimes. The only thing I could say is that the world we live in today is no longer safe for our children and us.

Yeah, so sad that even taking a stroll to the neighbourhood park is no longer safe, what with snatch thiefs and kidnappers and such... everyday is just a worry *sigh*

Yeah, it's no longer safe to live in now. I've experienced this before few years back whereby my bag was snatched by a motorist in front of the petrol station's cashier booth.
