FIGHTING BACK: Robbery victim offers RM10,000 for capture of assailants
A RETIRED surgeon, who was robbed and slashed on the face, yesterday offered a RM10,000 reward for information leading to the capture of his four assailants.
Dr Frank Ow Yang Abdullah, 47, who suffered a deep slash above his left eye, said he was offering the reward to assist police in nabbing the culprits.
"I want the culprits to pay. Doctors have told me that I could go blind in my left eye.
"They are still monitoring my condition," he said at his house in Mutiara Damansara yesterday.
Dr Ow was attacked in Damansara Perdana on Wednesday afternoon after he came out of a hardware shop.
He was standing outside his car, talking on his handphone when a man came from behind and snatched his iPhone 4s before jumping on a waiting motorcycle.
Dr Ow ran after the suspects and grabbed them. A scuffle ensued but two others came on a motorcycle and slashed him. The four then escaped with the handphone.
Dr Ow was rushed to a nearby clinic before being referred him to the Pantai Medical Hospital.
The victim, who is also a landscape architectural consultant, is now recuperating at home.
"I am now hoping for the best that I would not lose my vision and that the culprits are caught."
He is still traumatised by the incident and urged those with information on the case to contact his wife, Lin, at 012-8783122 or lawyer Naraen at 012-2328703.
Petaling Jaya district police chief Assistant Commissioner Arjunaidi Mohamed said police are still investigating the case.
