National badminton head coach Rexy Mainaky's wife suffered injuries when dragged by two snatch thieves in Ampang, last night.

Cheras police chief ACP Ahmad Amir Mohd Hashim said during the 11pm incident, Rexy and his wife Henny were walking to their car from a restaurant at Ampang City here when two assailants on a motorcycle tried to grab her hand beg.



He told Bernama that Rexy's wife was injured when she tussled with her assailant who tried to snatch her hand beg, causing her to be dragged and suffered minor injuries to her left arm.



Rexy, who displayed tremendous fighting spirit during his heydays as a doubles player, however, refused to be beaten by the assailants and jumped into his car and chased the suspects before knocking the motorcycle, causing the pillion rider to fall off.



Ahmad Amir said passers-by who saw the incident quickly apprehended the fallen suspect while his accomplice who was riding the motorcycle, fled the scene.


He added that the 33-year-old, suspect had six previous records for molest, drugs and Restricted Residence Act offences.



"He will be remanded for four days to facilitate investigation," said Ahmad Amir, adding that police were looking for his accomplice, aged 40.



Meanwhile, Henny received treatment at the Gleneagles Ampang.
