Petaling Jaya: A senior vice-president of CIMB Investment Bank was car-jacked and severely assaulted after a staged accident in Damansara Utama Uptown, recently.
Investment analyst Raymond Yap Kok Hoe, 39, was knocked out cold after being bashed and was warded overnight at the Damansara Specialist Hospital.
Yap lost his company car, handphone, an iPad and his briefcase.
Relating his ordeal which occurred on Aug 6, Yap said he left his office at 8.30pm and drove to Damansara Utama Uptown to buy dinner for his family.
The father of two said that just before he reached a 7-Eleven outlet, his car was rammed from behind by another vehicle.
“I got down to check the damage and before I knew it, I was hit hard on my face and shoulder. I then lost consciousness,” he told the New Straits Times in a telephone interview.
“I was found by a stranger. He revived me and contacted my wife. I sustained a bad bruise on my jaw and hurt my shoulder.”
Yap, who has been with CIMB for the past seven years said he blacked out again and regained consciousness early Tuesday while still at the hospital.
He was told by a doctor following a scan that he may have suffered a mild stroke from the trauma of the assault. He was also examined by a heart surgeon the following day.
“At the moment, I really don't know if I am permanently scarred by this. My right leg seems not to have proper blood flow.
“However, the medical report said that I have no permanent damage or injuries,” he said.
Yap added that his father lodged a report at the Damansara Utama police station on the night of the incident.
“I have yet to receive any feedback from the police. My family and colleagues were shocked but relieved that I am alive.
“I am glad I wasn't run over by any vehicle as I was lying unconscious on the road.”
News of Yap’s incident was publicised widely over Facebook after he had used his wife’s iPad to relate his experience.
Excerpts of what he wrote: “I am using my wife's iPad to write this e-mail. I hope all will be well so that I can return to my normal routine again. My fellow
Malaysians, do take note that stopping to check bumper damage isn't really a good idea anymore, even for guys.”
Petaling Jaya police chief Assistant Commissioner Arjunaidi Mohamed confirmed the report and added that a special team is investigating the case.
