Semporna district police chief Supt Peter Umbuas said in the 8.30pm incident Monday, the victim had boarded an illegal taxi driven by the suspect after finishing work at a private clinic here.
"The driver then changed direction and drove towards Jalan Baru Kampung Bugaya, saying he wanted to pick up a friend there. "But when they reached Jalan Kampung Keramat, the man pulled out a knife and pointed it at the victim's thighs.
"The victim then struggled with the suspect and managed to wrest the knife from him before stabbing him in the stomach," he said in a statement here Wednesday.
He said the suspect then ordered the victim to get out of the vehicle, before fleeing with several items belonging to the victim, including her handbag.
Peter said they were now looking for the suspect, and requested any clinic that receives a patient with a stab wound in the stomach to contact the nearest police station or the police headquarters in Semporna at 089-781 244.
After all that happened, this illegal cab driver would probably need to look for the service of a traditional witch doctor and also for a new job after screwing up Big time in his vocation. This robber just reminded me of another unlucky robber who was crying after his head was locked in a Jiu-Jitsu woman's thighs. On the other hand, the lady nurse should consider herself very, very lucky for not injuring herself while putting up a fight with an armed robber.
Not every nurse gets away lucky. A male nurse in Philippines did the same thing by putting up a fight with an armed robber and was critically hurt in the incident. Ryan Antony Gonzales was stabbed three times in the back after which the robber followed the victim to the house and stole his cell phone plus 10 000 Pesos and stabbed him once again before leaving.
