GEORGE TOWN: The fight against crime never takes a break – as shown by a policeman on holiday here from China who helped catch a snatch thief.

Luo Yong, 40, was taking a photograph of his wife, Dai Qi, strolling along the tourist spot Love Lane when a motorcyclist came from behind and grabbed her handbag.

He immediately pounced on the man and shoved him off his vehicle during the 9.30pm incident on Tuesday.

  1. We have read enough on the newspapers of such crimes happening on daily basis thru out the country. For the time being, with not enough cops and uneven deployment of police personnel to the streets, we have to take care of ourselves when walking on the streets. Hope the S’gor govt can get the targeted 100,000 petition signatures to get the ancillary police approved by the Federal govt. Otherwise, the serious crimes rate will climb until everyone needs to engage own security personnel to safeguard there premises be it the residential areas or commercial areas.

    This scene or episode was so familiar to me as happened on (8:50am 21/5/2013) in front of my factory at Taman Mas and my wife was the victim, unfortunately I could not out run and hit the fast fleeing snatch thieves on motorbike. Her hand bag and valuables were gone, and she sustained some injuries.
