The incident occurred when the victim named Yahya Muhajimin Mustafa (aged 21) parked his motorbike in front of a minimarket in Jalan Kunti II on Sunday afternoon. After a few minutes, he noticed that his motorbike with registration number DK 6243 FBN was gone.

When the victim looked for his stolen motorbike, he and his partner spotted Supanta pushing it away. The suspect even attempted to turn on the vehicle by dismantling the front part of the motorbike several meters from the scene.
