HORRIBLE: CCTV footage with police
KUALA LUMPUR: A WOMAN was robbed and slashed on her head at the car park of Mid Valley Megamall here on Friday evening.
The 10.30pm incident, which happened not far from an entrance to a cinema, was the third robbery at major shopping complex car parks in the Klang Valley over the past month.
All three cases involved female victims who were walking alone.
A witness, who declined to be named, said the victim was found by shoppers who then alerted the mall's security officers.
The victim was found leaning against a wall with blood gushing from her head. She was also injured on her hands, believed to be defensive wounds.
"The woman was too traumatised, her hands were shaking. She could only tell the security guards that she had been robbed," said the witness.
It was learnt that the victim was only several metres away from her parked car when she was attacked. However, the car was not stolen.
Meanwhile, Mid Valley Megamall assistant public relations manager Stephanie Tan said they had surrendered CCTV recordings of the incident to the police.
"The victim was given immediate assistance by our staff and cistomers at the mall soon after the incident.
"She suffered injuries to her head and face, and was rushed to University Malaya Medical Centre in an ambulance," Tan said in a statement last night.
The victim was discharged from the hospital yesterday morning.
Tan said the incident happened at an office tower lift lobby at parking zone G, at level four.
"We learnt that the victim lost her i-Phone, a small amount of cash, her identity card, driving licence and bank cards, in the incident.
"The mall management will extend its full cooperation to facilitate investigations."
Meanwhile, Brickfields police chief Assistant Commissioner Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid said police had yet to receive a report.
