Condo folks fuming over poor security
BY ANDREW SAGAYAM
PETALING JAYA: The recent rape of a 24-year-old woman and abduction of her husband have sent shivers up the spines of residents of a condominium and they have threatened legal action against the management if security is not improved.
The residents of the Palm Springs condominium in Section 13, Kota Damansara also claimed that there had been 15 burglaries and robberies this year.
“Is the management waiting for someone to die before they decide to take action?” asked S. Tavasundram, 36, advisor to the residents association there.
Last Monday, the woman, believed to be a model, was assaulted and raped in her unit by three men who had earlier abducted her 26-year-old husband at the condo’s car park at 6.30am.
The men took the house keys from the man, dumped him in Shah Alam and drove to the unit where the woman was alone. The couple was also robbed of their cash, valuables and two cell-phones.
Tavasundram questioned how the three suspects were able to get in and out of the condo.
“What were the guards doing? We, the residents, know the guards are not patrolling the parking lots which they should be doing 24 hours a day,” he said, adding that there was a shortage of parking bays.
“There are 2,180 units and we only have 329 parking bays for residents and 38 for visitors.
“When we park outside (the condominium premises), we risk getting our cars stolen or vandalised,” he said.
Condominium manager Samuel Ho said that the residents had gone overboard with their reactions.
“I would be lying if I said that we were offering a crime-free condominium but we have had a good track record all this while,” he said.
“We have enough security guards working round the clock to ensure safety.
“We also work closely with the police.
“Of course, we will look into the residents claims,” he added.
