VIDEO: Boy in Grab car attacks driver with a knife in Sungai Petani – e-hailing cars need interior dashcams

A shocking video was recently posted in the ‘Penduduk Sungai Petani Kedah’ Facebook group (reposted by @sungaikelaut on X), where a passenger in a Grab car is seen attacking the driver in Sungai Petani, Kedah.

In the interior dashcam footage, a boy that netizens are claiming to be around 13 years of age is seen in the back seat while being driven by the elderly Grab driver. At around the 1:10 minute mark of the video, the driver pulls up to the destination and prepares to receive payment.

A few seconds later, the boy pulls out what appears to be a knife and attempts to stab the driver but is thwarted and proceeds to exit the vehicle and run away. The driver doesn’t appear to be physically harmed following the attack.

The motive of the attack is not known but this incident shows the importance for e-hailing cars to have interior dashcams installed. It is common for cars to have outward-facing dashcams to capture critical footage in the event of a traffic accident, but not many e-hailing cars have one for the interior. If you provide e-hailing rides, consider getting one for your car.

    i think many ehailing didnt put inside view dashcam bcoz :
    1. expensive to get a reliable 1
    2. whether it is ok/legal to record passenger. Scare of privacy dispute later.
    3. No clear guideline from the platform provider.
    Suggest that:
    Ehailing platform provide cloud based camera, auto record during job. Data store for 2mths in their cloud/server. So there will no risk for driver mishandled the data. Inform passenger/driver tht journey will be recorded.

      Obviously is the boy planning to grab money with the knife that’s why he has no planned destiny, keep ask the driver pusing sini sana that’s why the uncle scold him, can’t you try to understand what is the video telling ? Who the hell will carry such big knife in a grab car for this age?

    • where is the compassion? on Nov 28, 2023 at 11:39 pm

      there is a serious problem here. What kind of upbringing tht can lead to such a violent child? Only 13yrs old, with the intention to hurt. Where is the compassion? Ask me to cut a live chicken also not dare. How can a boy so cruel??? Something really wrong here! If gment r serious abt the future, plz do something to correct it. It is very wrong to hurt anybody, no matter what kind of excuse. Need to look into root cause of this.

    Good thing is uncle grabbed the weapon, finger prints of the culprit can be traced & someone check which school is he from! Shit getting outta control.

    What the heck is an interior dashboard gonna do? Record the way you gonna die? That is so freaking dumb!

    Government should have regulated to put rear passenger acrylic panel shielding up and only allow passengers to rear seating!

      Exactly what I was gonna say. Use this incident to push dashcam sales. I’d say need both dashcam and acrylic panel.

  • An elder woman(a friend of my mon) was slaughtered, by stabbing in the abdomen and slitting the throat. Not sure what happened but if it’s attempted robbery, the robber will take the car but her body was left at the back seat. So scary is Malaysia becoming more dangerous?
