In a bizarre yet comical incident captured on CCTV, a Malaysian-plated motorcycle rider’s ill-fated attempt to pilfer motorbike parts has become the talk of the town.
The incident, dated September 14, unfolded in a peculiar sequence of events that left both the motorbike owner and amused onlookers in stitches.
The Mysterious Thief Strikes
The CCTV footage, though not crystal clear, offers a glimpse into the unfolding drama. A shadowy figure is seen lurking near a parked motorcycle, which happens to be a brand-new, eye-catching model adorned with intricate gold embellishments.
The motorbike’s owner, who remains off-camera, can be heard exclaiming, “There! He’s trying to shake my thing! Then cannot.”
The “thing” in question is presumably one of the bike’s side mirrors or another piece of equipment attached to the vehicle. It appears that the thief’s attempt to steal the item ends in failure, prompting a hasty retreat.
He swiftly mounts his own motorcycle and speeds away, leaving the scene with nothing to show for his efforts.
“Cannot, he’s gone already,” the motorbike owner says as he commentates over the video, his voice laced with a mixture of amusement and relief.
Round Two: The Thief’s Return
Just moments after his initial failed attempt, the thief experiences an inexplicable resurgence of determination. With an unexpected u-turn, he heads back to the scene, ready to give it another shot.
“Try one more time sia,” comments the motorbike’s owner, his commentary mirroring the sheer audacity of the would-be thief.
However, much to everyone’s amusement, the second attempt also ends in fiasco. The thief’s mission to dislodge the coveted item once again proves fruitless, and he departs empty-handed, albeit with some unintended scratches on the gleaming new motorbike.
Public Outcry and Words of Caution
The incident quickly gained traction on social media, with comments on the Facebook post expressing disdain for the bungling suspect. Many urged the motorbike owner to report the incident to the police, considering the damage caused.
While it remains undisclosed whether the motorbike owner pursued legal action, he did take the opportunity to issue a passionate public service warning: “Nothing was stolen, but the hassle he left behind cost money. Fellow bikers, please be alert and look out for this idiot!!! Try not to park your fancy bike beside him, or please watch out for him.”
