Be Alert and Careful, ladies....

This morning when I arrived at work, I saw on the white board written that 2 of my colleagues went to the police station and to the hospital. It involves students as they were from the student affair departments, I thought.

Later, I then asked another colleague why did they go to the specify mentioned places? And I was told, that one of my colleagues, the handbag got snatched and she was slashed in her left hand.

She came in the morning at 8 plus and she parked at the side lane, the usual place. She saw someone who's tall, dark and skinny standing at the side labe looking at her via her side mirror. She thought the guy just standing there, minding his own business.

As she was about to alight from her car, he approached her and stuck a knife at her side asking her to be quiet. Knowing that she being robbed, she held tightly her handbag. He continued to grab the bag and she continues to grip tightly.

The robber tried to slash her handbag away from her grip, but in doing that, he slashed her left palm leaving a deep gash. She gave a chilling scream until it alerted all her other colleagues and students. She was quickly administered first aid and was driven to the hospital.

My colleague received 8 stitches. Thank God, her wound was only on her palm only, not on her face or other parts of her body.

Ps. Ladies, please be very careful and alert at all times. Try not to carry handbags if neccessary, if you do carry, BE ALWAYS ALERT and street smart.

Can photostat NRIC and keep in handbag its OK by the authorities. Best is NOT to 'fight' with the robber as they are desperate people. Give them the handbag by all means. Read in an article advise to throw the handbag far away so that when they rush for it the victim then can run for life to safety. Money lost can be earned back but when a life is lost money is lost together and forever. My 2 $en.

Claire:Better not to carry at all, but I heard its an offence if you don't carry them.

Government should have a more stricter law to punish them.

Bananaz:Really bor? The last I heard is that not carrying ic is an offence. But then again, if the robber or anyone managed to pick up your ic and they can misuse it.

Nowadays, detachable handbags are sold. The handbags can be detached by itself when it is pulled. It's safe in a sense that the victim is not in danger situation anymore.
