Morning (6.50am, at Lembah Keramat. From far it looked as if the taxi driver only was in taxi so i did not look at front passenger seat when i got in the back. After a few minutes i realized a man was sitting in front passenger seat (he was small sized and must have hidden in front). By then it was too late. Taxi driver drove into a lonely area and said he must drop off the passenger first. Suddenly man in front jumps to the back and holds a knife to me. Says he will kill if i don't cooperate. There goes my ring (worth RM300), cash (only RM130), and my Nokia smartphone (a gift from my sister worth RM1700 when new).
Taxi drives all the way to Gombak and finally stops at a school. Driver allows me to get off. A kind taxi driver takes me to police station without payment when i told him i had just been robbed.
Police say the taxi was reported stolen. I think the driver drives around minus Mr. Knife sometimes. On that day i did not check whether front number plate was same as the one inside the taxi, so maybe HWC3508 is not the number plate in front.
Another taxi driver said his sister-in-law encountered the same two years ago at the AU4 area. Police please stop this duo soon!!
update; the same modus operandi was reported in metro 11 january. woman lost rm4000.
