New robbers tactic - Eggs Thrown on Windscreen (Malaysia)

The latest tactic used by the robbers to stop you while driving and to rob, rape or slash you has come to my attention after a friend of mine was trapped in this situation.

LATEST CASE
My good friend was driving along Kesas Highway just after Plaza Tol Puchong towards Kajang. This happened last Sunday 23rd December at around 11 pm with his wife after attending a dinner function at his relative's house in Bandar Sunway.

Suddenly a motorbike over took them and the pillion rider threw 2 eggs towards his car windscreen. Within seconds his whole windscreen was smeared with the liquid from the egg. His immediate reflex's action was to turn on his windscreen wiper and the whole surface became very blur.

So he immediately slowed his car and brought it to a halt along the emergency lane.
Then he got out of his car and was trying to wipe and wash the windscreen while his wife was seated inside the car. All of a sudden a Proton Satria stopped behind his car and 3 guys came running towards him with Samurai Swords screaming at him to surrender his car and wallet.

Luckily my friend who is attached to the Police CID division managed to pull his gun out and fire two warning shot in the air. To his surprise the 3 guys ran back into their car and drove off with very high speed.
He called up the police and they checked out the plate number and found it to be a false number plate.

Apparently this tactic has been very often used in the latest string of road side robberies especially with lady drivers or men driving alone or with women and small children.
So please if you were to ever encounter such situation the best to do is to make sure:

1) Not to turn on your wiper.
2) Continue driving to the nearest Petrol Station, Police Station, Mamak Shop, Seven Eleven or any other place that is bright and have human crowd to attract attention.

Please send this information to your dear friend's and family members.
