The suspects refused to give up, and the GrabFood rider stepped down from his motorcycle to engage them.
Soon after, other passersby also stop to help.
Fast And Furious
According to Sin Chew, the looting occurred at around 8:22 pm on Sunday (21 August).
Surveillance footage showed that the victim was walking alone on the side of the road when two robbers passed her on a motorcycle.
One of the robbers snatched her belongings in a place the CCTV did not cover.
The woman resisted hard, clutching her backpack tightly, and both sides chased on the road.
Just as the suspects were about to flee, the GarbFood rider hit their motorcycle from behind.
The surveillance footage showed that several motorcycles and cars were parked on the side of the road at this time, and everyone rushed to the scene to rescue them.
One rushed over from the opposite lane to assist and accidentally fell during the period.
No Excuse For Being Vigilante
Today, beating a stranger on the road for allegedly committing a ‘crime’ has become a trend.
In some instances, the criminals beg the police for help, fearing being beaten up by the angry mob.
