I am talk about the quite famous crime in Malaysia. These include pickpockets, snatch theft, house breaking, rape and sexual abuse kids. In our assignment, we discuss about what these crime is, how it happens, the effects or consequences and the way to prevent the crime.
Nowadays, our country is becoming more danger than before. When we go out at night, maybe we will meet a snatch theft that snatches our things or maybe someone will kidnap you too. It is really dangerous when going outside at night. But, I can tell you that while it is still day we can be in danger too. People are more horrible than ghost now. They will do anything just to get something. They will not care about the consequence. It is very horrible.
Crimes are happening around us every day. When we read the newspaper every day, they will be news is about crime, no matter what crime it is. So, we should appreciate our life and always stay alert when we are out from the house to prevent these crimes happen to our life.

House Breaking

The meaning of break in is a person goes in to a house silently and without asking the permission of the house owner and go in to the house. This person will steal anything that is expensive or valuable. Usually, they will go in where nobody is home.
This crime case is happen where the theft force opens the windows, grille gates or doors. The other way is cutting the padlocks, and grilles, or maybe gaining entry through neighboring house or shop. The most careless for the owner is gaining entry by using household tools left outside the house.
Lock all the doors and windows when you are not in the house. Do not left any valuable things in your house. The snatch theft usually is well prepared when they plan to break in someone house. So, everyone must prepare not to give a chance to let them break in our house. Tell your neighborhoods to always take alert and keep an eye on your house while you are away.
The punishment for this crime is to jail them not less than 18 months and not more than 10 years, and a fine. This punishment is only for day. While housebreaking and theft by night is to jail of not less than 2 years and not more than 14 years and a fine.

Child Abuse

Child abuse means that the child is abuse from his or her family without the children knowing. Most of the child abuse happens when they were still babies or abuse when they are in the child’s home or any other place. How does it happen?
Child abuse now is as common as it shocking. The child neglected by his or her family. Their family thinks that the birth of them is an unlucky or a bad thing. Usually child abuse happened when the child mother accidentally pregnant and they have no ability to take care of them, so they decide to leave them and abandon them. Their parents wish to give birth to them but unfortunately they can’t raise them up. The main reason is because economy problem. They do not wish to let their child suffer so they decide to abuse them, neglect them.
The most pity is the child actually. They do not have any people to accompany them and the abuse will lead them to a dark end with no hope. Their family thinks that abuse them is the best way to let them survive but they are wrong. The caring of the family is the most important to the child. They are just only a little kid which does not know anything. All they need is just the love of the family.

Pick Pockets

What is a pickpocket? Pickpocket means that it is a thief who steals from pockets without anyone knowing. Usually, this crime is not violent and it is an easy way to get some extra money without hurting the victims. Pick pockets usually happened in a place where there are crowded or a place where are full of people. Even if suspected, a pickpocket can clam ignorance and just say they bumped into the person. These pick pockets are hard to catch unless you have the evidence.
There are all sorts of pick pockets in the world. In Malaysia, pick pockets usually happened in the bus, lrt or train because these public transport is full of people when morning and evening. This is a chance where pick pockets can steal from you. When the pick pockets discover you carry some money and valuable things like a brand new style cell phone, they will steal it when you are not paying attention and the thief can disappear into crowds easily.
Pick pockets like easy targets. A skilled pick pocket can hit almost any pocket, but they prefer easy targets. Open bags, outside pockets of a backpack or shoulder bag, these will cause their attention. For example, you put your wallet in a back pocket when crowded or full of people, I am sure that you can’t find your wallet when you go back home. Other than that, please do not think that pick pockets is only for adult but sometimes a kid will do a pick pocket as well. So, be very careful when you are outside the house. Only you can protect yourselves.


The meaning of rape means it is an unwanted sexual intercourse. The victims are forced but not volunteer to do so. Sometimes, rape also called sexual assault, it can happen to both men and woman of any age.
Rape is about power but not sex. A rapist uses actual force or violence to force the victims to have sex with them. The rapist is taking control over another human being. Some of them are using drugs to take away a person’s ability or tie them up. No matter how it happened, rape is frightening and horrible.
A people who have been raped before, they need comfort, care and a way to recover. They will feel depressed and alone. They need friends and the support of the family. The rapist is such a horrible person. They are irresponsible. After they get their so call happiness, they ran away just like a mouse. This crime is seriously affecting the woman. In Malaysia, the victims usually will be killed by the rapist. Nowadays, human being is more and more horrible. We are human but some of them acting like wild animal. Why? The world is changing. People do not care about the consequence anymore.
Surely, rape is not about passion and has nothing to do with love. Rape is only an act of aggression and violence only. There is nothing more but just this. We must take good care of ourselves and stay alert.

Snatch Theft

In Malaysia, snatch theft is a very general crime case. Snatch theft is a criminal act of forcefully stealing from a person while employing rob-and-run tactics. It is typical for two thieves to work together and ride a motorcycle to make theft escape easier. A person drives the vehicle while another does the act of theft itself. However, some of the snatch thief works alone or do not use a motorcycle to rob. They just walk closely to the victims and snatch their handbags away.
Lately, some instances of snatch theft have caused fatalities through subsequent acts of violence. They not only wish to get the money but sometimes they do hurt people by forcing them to give the theft money. Nowadays, there are so many snatch thefts around us. It is frightening. This crime happens when the snatch thefts approaching victim when they are not alert and no people around, then snatch the handbag or necklace or cell phones from the behind of the victim. Through this action, the victim maybe falls down and hurt them.
If the theft has been caught, he will be jail term which may extend to three years or a fine or both. The other one is when a person convicted of theft with assault or criminal force is liable to a jail term of not less than one year and not more than seven years and caning. This is the consequence of what the theft did.

Vehicle Theft

Vehicle theft, or sometimes we call motor vehicle theft, is the criminal act of stealing or attempting to steal a motor vehicle, including a car, a bus, motorcycle or any other vehicle. These thefts sometimes maybe steal the things inside the car or steal the whole car.
The theft either by breaking and entry, followed by hotwiring or other tampering methods to start the vehicle to steal it. The theft also takes the vehicle by force or threat of force from its owner or operator of the car. In most places, this is the most serious form of theft, since assault also occurs. The operators and passengers are forced from the vehicle while the thief drives it away or maybe the passengers are forced to remain in the vehicle as hostages. This usually happen when a child is left in the vehicle or a person is having a nap and the theft decide to steal the car.
Mostly, the victims report as soon as the theft left or discovers their car has lost. Vehicles stolen are less likely to be returned to their owners, since they have been dismantled, and some of the parts have either been sold as replacement parts or built into new vehicles. The vehicles most frequently stolen are Toyota Camry, Honda Accord and some expensive cars which cost a lot. But, nowadays, except the old type pattern and broke car, the theft will steal any model of car just to get some money.
