Robber in Shopping Malls Washroom
by Sylvia Chew on Monday, July 23, 2012 at
Hi guys, this is what
happened to me on 23rd July 2012 (Monday) and I want to share it out to
everyone, especially girls.
We all know shopping malls carpark are not safe, but now, the
WASHROOMS are not safetoo!!!
I was back from college and I stopped by at Sunway Pyramid
I was holding my
MacbookPro, my Iphone and my handbag.
It was 5:35pm and I wanted to go to the washroom. I went into the
ladies washroom at LG floor, opposite MPH, alone.
When I walked to the washroom area, there was
one guy (malay-looking, or indonesian, something like that) was sitting at the
bench. I looked at him and he seemed like he's waiting for someone, so I didnt
think much and went into the washroom.
Then I chose a cubicle and I placed my laptop, my phone and my
handbag on the desk-thing behind the toilet bowl.
The washroom was empty, it made me a lil bit
worry. So i paid extra attention.
Then I walked out from the cubicle to get tissue outside. I was just
being very slow since I was not urgent.
When I walked out from the cubicle, I saw the guy at the doorstep of
the ladies from the mirror. He saw me too so he backed off. I thought he went
into the wrong toilet so I din scream since he has already back off. Then I
proceed to get my tissue. But I've started suspecting.
I have this habit that I'll wipe the toilet
bowl and place tissue on it only I'll sit down, so I was slowly nicely placing
the tissue. I haven't taken off any garments on me yet.
Then I heard footsteps. I was worry. So I
stopped placing the tissue, I stood there and I paid attention to the
I heard the footsteps
went into the cubicle next to me. It was not heels step. It was heavy flat shoes
footsteps. Then I was still standing there because I was suspecting. (I cant be
sure if it's the toilet worker)
Suddenly, a hand appeared above me and it grabbed my handbag on the
desk-thingy behind the toilet bowl. Then I saw the guy.
He had shoulder length hair, wearing
brown/gray tshirt, long pants.
was already paying attention so I roared at the guy and ran out to chase
He was scared maybe, so he
dropped my bag on the floor and ran away.
I'm not sure if he took anything, so I ran out together with him
wanted to chase him.
There was 3
witnesses outside the toilet. And they helped me to chase too.
The fail robber ran down the staircase behind
the washrooms. Then I quickly went back into the washroom to check if anything
of mine got stolen.
as my phone and laptop was out of my bag, it was still there. And my bag was on
the floor, purse is still inside.
I have only RM40 left inside my purse so I was not so worry about it.
It's just most importantly my phone and my laptop, and my ICs and license ( i hv
no credit cards so it's fine).
Everything of mine was not being stolen. And I was safe.
Then I clarified with the 3 witnesses and I
quickly went to the customer service desk to report about this. Told the
management the whole story and I guess they're working harder with their mall
Just want to
share this out to everyone because in Malaysia now, even just going to the
washroom in shopping mall is not safe anymore.
Luckily I havent get my pants off as I was
slowly cleaning the toilet bowl. If not, I wouldnt get to run out to chase the
robber at the first second.
Especially to the girls, please be extra careful when you go to the
washrooms, avoid entering it alone.
Please pay more attention to the people around the washroom before
If the washroom is
empty, avoid entering.
the shopping malls will pay more attention to the security, not only with the
carparks, but also the washrooms.
