KUALA TERENGGANU -- A religious teacher broke her left arm in an accident in Kampung Seberang Baruh, here, last night when chasing two men who snatched her handbag while she was riding a motorcycle to fetch her children home.
Nor Azlina Mat Jusoh, 38, said the suspects rode a Honda Ex-5 but other than that, she could not identify the suspects as they wore full-faced helmets and came from behind.
"I chased after them but unfortunately I fell when I was making a U-turn," she said, adding that the suspects sped off and she was sent to Sultanah Nur Zahirah Hospital by passers-by in the 9pm incident.
Nor Azlina, who teaches at Sekolah Kebangsaan Kubang Ikan, said she was determined to chase after the snatch thieves as the handbag contained RM500 for her house rent, motorcycle instalment and other expenses.
She said the snatch theft was the second for her after the first about 10 years ago. Besides a broken arm, she has lacerations on other parts of her body from last night's incident.
Kuala Terengganu district police chief, ACP Zamri Samsuddin confirmed the incident when contacted. -- Bernama
