Boy that stabbed Grab driver with a knife is 13 years old and could be charged with attempted robbery

The boy that was caught on video attacking a Grab driver with a knife could be charged under Section 393 of the Penal Code for attempted robbery, said Kuala Muda district police chief Asst Comm Zaidy Che Hassan.

As reported by The Star, Zaidy said the 65-year-old Grab driver escaped unhurt despite being stabbed in the chest by his 13-year-old passenger. “The tip hit the seatbelt instead. By then, the driver managed to put up a struggle and grab hold of the knife. He bit the boy’s hand and the suspect fled the car. We recovered a knife measuring 25 cm long in the car,” said Zaidy.

He added that prior to the attack, the driver picked up the boy in Lorong Keladi 12, Taman Keladi to go to Lorong Astana 9/7 in Bandar Seri Astana. During the journey, the boy asked the driver for RM50 to pay his house rent, to which the driver said he would drop the boy off on the spot if he did not have money.

The boy refused and asked to be brought back to Taman Keladi and paid the driver the fare of RM18. “He then directed the driver through several alleys. The driver eventually dropped him off and requested an additional payment of RM9. While in the midst of giving him change for an RM20 note, the boy stabbed him but missed,” said Zaidy.

The boy was arrested from his house at 10pm on the day of the incident (November 27, 2023) following a report lodged by the driver, and his one-day remand expired yesterday. “Investigations found that the boy is the eldest of four siblings in a family. He did not come from a problematic background. The reason he acted in such a way was due to anger. He was scolded by the driver and he was trying to get back his money,” Zaidy said.

      Hello,next time you book a taxi or Grab…carry a knife.
      When the driver a bit lunsi or scolds u,dish out the knife.Is this the moral of the story? Use a real knife to get back your money n stab him ,in case the driver is a cheat?
      The driver could have his artery severed…instant DEATH.
      This “looks ” like is a serious n violent CRIME. Not like the solidarity bringing of fake knives to sekolah.
      PMX,u got to be firm on this thing.A wrong is a wrong.
      The driver might be wrong,but he doesnt deserve to be stabbed.

        “yahudi” is the true problem, because “yahudi” are the most religious racist and extremist in the world. Period.

        It is also Yahudis that spread evil programs in kids brain trough tv and social medias, Yahudis do everything they can to destroy other races (including Chinese) but chineses are too money face to recognize how much they have already been fucked by their masters.

        (check the news, and do your calculations….) after that, I may explain you how to sharpen a 12.5cm knife.

    the boy told the cops that he had acted out of anger because he was trying to get his money back. it would be interesting to know the boy’s reply when the cops asked him the reason for bringing along a concealed 25cm long knife.

      Kitchen style or China Tactical USA inspired tactical ? Let investigate which type of blade should be forbidden or requiring a licence to cut :-/

    • Concealed weapon means hidden bad intentions on Nov 30, 2023 at 3:45 pm

      The boy with the concealed knife was obviously stalling about his final destination because he was waiting for a suitable time & place to strike & rob the old man driver. Of course, the old man was irritated by the boy’s display of indecisiveness & got angry. However, even if the old man was a more patient guy & did not get angry, the outcome would not be much different if the intention of the boy with the concealed knife is to assault & rob the old man in the 1st place.

    imagine yourself as the driver, you were informed that police might charge that criminal ‘attempted robbery’ after he tried to murder you by stabbing you with a 25cm knife to your chest even with video recording as evidence.

    now this downplay make me curious who the parents are.
