Neighbours of victim threatened by ‘Ah Long’ fear gangsters may return

PETALING JAYA, Oct 17 — Residents in Jalan Sepah Puteri 5/14, Seri Utama, here are in fear and worried after an attack believed to be by Ah Long at a house in the area on Wednesday.

According to a neighbour of the 66-year-old victim targeted by Ah Long, known only as Muhamad, in his 50s, was shocked when he viewed a minute-long video of four men armed with parang and hammers in his housing area in Kota Damansara go viral on Facebook.

“Apparently, it was my neighbour’s house which was targeted..at the time of the incident normally most residents are away at work,” he said when met by Bernama here today.

He said his neighbour had not been seen at her house since glass bottles containing red paint were thrown at her house by the four armed men.

“The woman lived alone and rarely mixed with neighbours,” he said.

He hoped the authorities would quickly arrest the suspects involved and solve the problem of the Ah Long gangsters’ threat because the residents were traumatised by the incident.

Meanwhile, a security guard at the housing area, who only wanted to be known as Kasim, 29, said in the incident at about 2.50pm, a Toyota Estima car entered the residential area accompanied by a security guard on a motorcycle.

He said the four men in the car armed with parang and hammers exited the car and threw several bottles containing red paint towards the house and made a lot of noise.

“The security guard tailing them immediately informed the guard post via walkie-talkie before our manager contacted the police,” he said, adding that the four also threatened the security guard accompanying them but did not hurt him.

Kasim said the incident only took three minutes before the Toyota Estima exited by breaking the barrier bar at the entrance gate to the housing area and fled the scene. — Bernama
