Thief dies untimely after taking car with child inside

Thief dies after taking car with child inside

KUALA LUMPUR: In a freakish turn of events, a thief drove off a car with a seven-year-old boy inside only to die several kilometres away from the crime scene in Setapak here.

The boy was safely reunited with his family after passers-by, who noticed him crying alone in the vehicle, contacted his father.

It is believed that during the 7am incident, the boy’s mother – a teacher in her 30s – was sending her two younger daughters to a childcare centre in Taman Melati.

The mother was accompanying her daughters into the centre when the thief stole the car.

“She left the boy in the car with the engine running when the thief got into the vehicle and drove it away,” said City police CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Ku Chin Wah.

It is understood that the thief panicked because the boy was crying continuously.

He then pulled over and fled on foot with a bag, containing an undisclosed amount of cash belonging to the mother.

However, after taking a few steps, he collapsed and died.

Police later found his body on a road in Taman Setapak Indah, some 100m from the abandoned car.

ACP Ku said the body of the suspect, who had several drug-related crime records, was sent to the Kuala Lumpur Hospital for a post-mortem. ~the star
