Malaysian policeman loses gun to thief after falling asleep in car
PETALING JAYA (THE STAR/ ASIA NEWS NETWORK) - A 48-year-old serious crime officer was robbed of his gun with 15 bullets after he fell asleep in his car in Shah Alam early on Monday.
The sergeant-major was on his way home after attending his father's funeral in Klang at around 1.45am when he stopped his car by the side of the road near a housing area.
He then wound down the car window halfway, reclined his seat and closed his eyes for some rest.
After a while, he felt tugging at his thigh and woke up to find a man pulling off his Walter semi-automatic gun from the holder. The man escaped in a red Honda motorcycle before the officer could do anything.
