PETALING JAYA: A soon-to-be-opened luxury car showroom had a bad start to business when a car was stolen during a test drive.
The sales consultant, who rode with the thief, was threatened with an electric stun gun before she was ditched by the side of a highway. According to police reports, the man visited the showroom at 1pm on Monday.
The sales consultant then went out with him to test drive the luxury car, said Petaling Jaya deputy OCPD Supt Fadil Marsus in a statement.
“The man was driving on the LDP to Kepong when he stopped the car and ordered the sales consultant to get out.
“He then drove off, taking her mobile phone with him,” he said.
The sales consultant was uninjured and later lodged a police report.
Supt Fadil said police were looking for the man, who is in his 30s.
The car had the registration number WYC 315.
He urged members of the public with any information on the case to notify the police.
