Cheras Man Who Wanted To Rent Out His Property Ended Up Kidnapped, Stripped, And Robbed
A 26-year-old property agent in Cheras was kidnapped, stripped, and robbed by a potential customer on 13 April
During the meeting, the attacker said that he needed the man's help to evaluate a unit above the restaurant instead, and 'invited' the latter upstairs
The victim told China Press that the attacker did not mention anything about the house in Serdang, which he had initially expressed interest in.
"We met in the restaurant and he was with another Hongkee in his 40s," the property agent was quoted as saying by Sin Chew Daily.
"Just as we were all walking upstairs, he locked the entrance to the stairs and started beating me up with a wooden stick," he added.
The attacker claimed that he was the legitimate owner of the unit in Serdang
"He accused me of illegally occupying his unit and conned his money... He even asked me to compensate him," the victim revealed, according to Sin Chew Daily.
"He also grabbed a pair of scissors and forced me to apologise, and I did in fear of my safety," he added.
The 26-year-old revealed that he was also forced to take off his shirt, and dragged by his pants to a bank to retrieve RM10,000 from the ATM.
The men also took away his wallet, phone, and car keys – and locked him up in his own car.
"To deter me from escaping, they also stripped my pants and underwear," the victim added.
The property agent eventually ran away to a mamak stall nearby after being held for over three hours
"Everyone stared at me as if I was mental, but I was only concerned about my safety," the victim was quoted as saying by China Press.
He was given a jacket by a waiter at the mamak stall, before his brother arrived with a new pair of pants.
The 26-year-old then lodged a police report over the incident at the Cheras district police headquarters.
The suspects were arrested at the scene of the incident
However, both men denied knowing each other and robbing the victim of RM10,000. They remain in police custody to assist investigations.
According to Sin Chew Daily, the property agent believed that the attacker could be the previous owner of his unit in Serdang, but did not understand his antics as the unit was bought through legal means.
