PETALING JAYA – Out of desperation, a mother had to steal food and cooling gel plaster for her child who is down with fever.
A police report was lodged by the hypermarket, however, no action was taken against the woman.
The Petaling Jaya District Police Chief, Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said that he received the report from the hypermarket on the theft involving the unfortunate mother in her 30’s.
According to him, the management of the hypermarket caught the mother of three after finding her stealing cakes, sausages and plaster at around 3.00 pm yesterday. After investigation, they found that the woman had to steal the plaster and food for her child who is down with fever.
“Yes, I received the police report in my district, stating that a woman was arrested for stealing cakes and fever plaster to treat her child who is down with fever.
“I felt that I need to meet this woman. I believe that she has problems, otherwise, she would not do such thing.
“We can still hold the hunger, however, if our children are hungry… trust me!” he said.
Nik Ezanee shared the 6 minute 26 second video, showing his team and him visiting the mother at a PPR in Petaling Jaya.
“I come here to extend some help, rice from the Social Welfare Department we bought the rest and some Cool Fever medication for your child,” he said in the video.
According to him, the Movement Control Order (MCO) is truly challenging.
“Many people complain about the police setting up roadblocks and such, traffic congestions, many people break the rules. Please remember, other people suffer due to the effects of Covid-19.
“Let us sacrifice for the benefit of our future. Let us come together and help everyone,” he said. –MalaysiaGazette
