The majority of drivers for ride-hailing services are male, as many women fear the risks of picking up unknown passengers. Sadly, this risk rang true once again, when a female Grab driver was held at knife-point and sexually assaulted by a male passenger on Sunday morning, March 3.

The tragic incident happened at 5.36am in Puchong, near the KOI Prima condominium in Taman Mas, according to New Straits Times. The driver had picked up the passenger near the Awan Besar R&R, only to find herself being held at knife-point soon afterwards as they approached a dimly lit area.

Kuala Langat district Police Chief Superintendent Azizan Tukiman was quoted as saying,

“The suspect told the victim to keep quiet, covered her mouth and pointed his knife at her neck. The suspect then jumped to the front passenger seat before kissing her face and fondling her breasts.” 

As if that doesn’t already sound terrifying enough, the assailant then proceeded to unzip his pants in an attempt to rape her. At this moment, the driver used all of her force to extricate herself from the suspect, and successfully threw herself out of the moving car. Yes, the car was still being driven this entire time!

Once she broke free, she yelled for help from a passing taxi driver, and finally managed to flee the scene. Unfortunately, the suspect too had made a run for it once the woman started yelling for help.

The woman then asked the taxi driver to fetch her to the Putra Perdana police station, where she lodged a report at 7.15am. Police Chief Superintendent Azizan Tukiman also added that a search for the attacker, who is believed to be in his 20s, has been launched.
