Snatch theft vigilantism: Yemeni student remanded for seven days

SERDANG (31/07/2017): The Yemeni student who allegedly chased after a snatch thief in his car and knocked him off his motorcycle, causing his death, has been remanded for seven days.

Serdang OCPD Asst Comm Megat Mohamad Aminudin Megat Alias said the student, in his 20s, has been remanded until Sunday to help in investigations into the incident in Seri Kembangan early Sunday morning.

He has been remanded to assist investigations, he said when contacted on Monday.
ACP Megat Mohamad Aminudin reminded the public not to take the law into their own hands as this might endanger themselves and others.

The public should inform the police of any crime as soon as possible, and we will take the necessary action, he said.

On Sunday, the 25-year-old suspected snatch thief had grabbed a sling-bag belonging to the Yemeni student, who was having drinks at a stall at about 3.30am.

The student quickly got into his car and pursued the suspect for about 3km before he rammed his car into the suspects motorcycle near a traffic light. The suspect subsequently died due to head injuries.

The sling-bag belonging to the victim contained an i-kad along with RM2,050 and US$500 (RM2,141) in cash.

ACP Megat Mohamad Aminudin said that the snatch theft suspect had records for assault, criminal intimidation, and a drug offence.

The case has been classified as culpable homicide not amounting to murder under Section 304 of the Penal Code.
