Days later, he received a call from the suspect who expressed interest in buying two more cats — a British Short Hair and Munchkin breed which were worth RM10,000.

“He wanted to meet me at the parking lot of a shopping mall on Feb 18. However, I felt something was fishy about it and instead met him at a nearby bus stop.

I went there with my girlfriend at around 7.30pm and we noticed that the buyer’s car was smashed up, like it had just been involved in an accident.

“I went to speak to the buyer and entered his car…that was when he pulled out a knife and demanded that I transfer all my money to him,” he said.

Ryan said the suspect then told one of his accomplices to take the cats from his girlfriend, who was sitting in the car and oblivious to what had happened.

When Ryan saw the suspect’s accomplice leave the car to take the cats, he saw the opportunity to escape and unlocked the car door to escape.

Unfortunately, the suspect pulled out a parang and slashed him with it, causing him to receive 36 stitches for injuries on his right arm and leg.

After the attack, the suspects then fled with the two cats and Ryan’s mobile phone.

Ryan said he fears for his safety and is traumitised as the suspects know where he lives and is afraid they might come again.
