Mat Rempit assault, rob 3 foreigners

PETALING JAYA: Seven Mat Rempit assaulted and robbed three foreigners near Damansara Specialist Hospital on Thursday.

Indonesian students Faradilla Dwitya and Clarine Rolanda Wong were walking back to their home nearby with their French friend Ronan Gilles le Fur, when the Mat Rempit surrounded them at 6.15pm.

One of them brandished a knife at Faradilla and tugged at her handbag, but the plucky 19-year-old refused to let go.

Faradilla was then assaulted, and when Clarine and Ronan tried to help, they too were beaten up. The Mat Rempit then robbed them of their personal belongings, including wallets and mobile phones.

They later lodged a report at the Taman Tun Dr Ismail police station.

District police chief Assistant Commissioner Arjunaidi Mohamad said police patrols in the area had been increased to prevent similar incidents. NST
