You probably want to know more on Taman Mutiara MRT station. This is one of the biggest MRT station in Cheras. There are two main exits with lifts and three main bridges. The Taman Mutiara MRT station is built in between EKO Cheras Shopping Mall and Cheras Leisure Mall.

As we mentioned earlier there are two main exits, one main exit to Taman Mutiara (facing the shoplots) and the other main exit is Taman Segar Exit next to Cheras Leisure Mall. The three bridges connected to EKO Cheras Shopping Mall (Taman Mutiara Exit), Cheras Leisure Mall and MRT Parking Building (Taman Segar Exit).

This robbery happened in one of the lifts of the main exits. Either the lifts at Taman Mutiara exit or Taman Segar exit. The victim is a 48 year old woman it happens on 6.45 am 14th February 2019. The victim had forehead injuries and the robber took her purse containing her ID and ATM cards with RM 400 cash. The suspect is believed to be a local and the police is investigating this case under Section 394 of the Penal Code.

Now, things you should know about Taman Mutiara MRT Station and how you could probably avoid incidents like this.

Can you spot the security officer.

This is a huge MRT station and usually there are at least two people in the station (excluding staffs from the shops). There is always one to two train masters and one security officer. As the two lifts are away from the main station, it is hard for the security officer to guard both exits.

We noticed that many people prefer to use the lift especially young ladies and teenagers because they are lazy to use the stairs. Take the elevator or stairs so it is an open area, you can yell or shout if any incidents or run if you can. There are usually more people on the elevator area.

This is the lift inside the MRT station. Look at the lift, it is the same design.

If you spotted incidents like this, try to do something to help out. Shout at the robber or call for help from the security officer. If you can fight like Donnie Yen, you can fight him off but if you ‘think’ you can fight like Donnie Yen, just shout or ask for help. Try not to engage with robber as you do not know whether he carries a weapon.

We hope the police will catch the suspect and speedy recovery for the victim.
