The poor Sabat nursing his injury after allegedly slashed with a machete at Sungai Plan.

Poor ‘Sabat‘ – a local slang for door to door salesman of Pakistani/Indian descent – was injured allegedly, in an attempted robbery at Sungai Plan, Kidurong yesterday evening.

According to Enggan Chendan he was slashed by a group of drunk youth allegedly trying to rob his motorcycle.

It wasn’t clear if poor Sabat had lodged a police report on the incident or had his alleged robbers being detained.

It’s time for the government to build a police station or at least a police beat at Sungai Plan which is Bintulu densest housing complex to prevent petty crime such as this from recurring.

Thank to Dato Gabriella Hu and Enggat Chendan for the tip-off and pics.
