According to the 24-year-old, Johnson Wong, from Kg Likas, he took his girlfriend out for supper prior to the incident.
"After supper, I sent her home and decided to leave my house keys with her while I went to meet a colleague in a nearby eatery. However, after the meeting, I realised that my handphone had ran out of battery when I tried to call my girlfriend to inform her that I was coming to fetch my house keys," he claimed when met here Monday.
He claimed that he drove around looking for a public phone until he saw one at the side of a dim-lit road at about 2.30am.
"I parked my vehicle at the roadside with its keys in the ignition thinking that it was just a quick call, but in less than five minutes a man holding what looked like a one-metre machete appeared and pointed it towards me," he said.
"Everything happened so fast and in a blink of an eye I saw my vehicle being driven away by the machete-wielding man," he said, adding that his wallet contained a MyKad, driving licence, bank cards and RM100 was also inside the vehicle.
Wong, who lodged a report at the Karamunsing Police Station the same day, urged those who have seen his vehicle to contact him at 011-2184 1227.
