Video of motorist being robbed in Malaysia goes viral
Incident adds to jitters over spate of violent crimes
A video showing a motorist being robbed by five men with parangs and no one going to his aid has gone viral on social media sites, adding to the nation's alarm over increasingly brazen crimes.
While the date and time of the robbery are not known, the 50-second clip has been circulating since as early as mid-July, according to The Star newspaper.
The attack took place on a busy road, speculated to be in the Klang Valley or Johor Baru.
The robbers, wearing black ski masks, shouted and waved their parangs at the hapless victim before taking cash and valuables, and escaping in three cars.
