This is what the police said to make the jilted lover guy surrendered...

A little background story: The 23-year-old guy took his 35-year-old woman a hostage. She had dumped the loser, but the latter believed a gun could change her mind.

This is what the Malaysian police told him: "If you don't surrender soon, we'll rain bullets on you!"

The jilted lover guy: "Oh yeah? Don't care about my hostage, do you?!"

The police: "As a matter of fact, we don't! Always think lowly of a cougar."

The jilted lover guy: "..."

The police: "It means she's older than you, you goon."


The police: "And if she's killed, we can always say it's because of you!"

The jilted lover guy: "Uhm. Yes. Technically it's true."

The police: "So surrender. Now. Ah, what the hell, let's just shoot the bastard, guys! On count of three..."

The jilted lover guy: (THROWS AWAY THE GUN & HAS HIS HANDS UP)

She dumped him several weeks ago for another guy but he refused to accept it.

He tried to force her to return to him Friday - this time armed with a gun.

The 23-year-old jilted lover stormed into the 35-year old divorcee's hair salon in Taman Kosas Ampang at 9.30am after waiting in his car for more than an hour for her to arrive.

She ignored his pleas to return to him and a shouting match ensued during which he grabbed and assaulted her.

When two of her workers tried to come to her aid, he pulled out a Walther P99 semi-automatic pistol and fired three shots at the ceiling.

The man, who used to work as the salon's caretaker, held the woman hostage in the double-storey shoplot after the workers fled and called the police from a public phone booth nearby.

Police cordoned off the area and called the man through mobile phones left behind by the two workers.
During the two-hour stand off, two police officers continuosly coaxed him to surrender as a large crowd watched the high noon drama from outside.

"We told him to give himself up as the shoplot was surrounded by police and the best option for him was to surrender peacefully," said Ampang Jaya police chief Asst Comm Abdul Jalil Hassan.

The man finally released the woman and gave up at about 1.30pm.

ACP Abdul Jalil said the man told police that he had bought the pistol in Penang for RM20,000 on Wednesday.

Police have classified the case under Section 3 of the Firearms Act (Heavier Penalties) 1971 which carries the mandatory death sentence.

From Asiaone, "Jilted man takes lover hostage".

PS. The quoted article is non fiction. The dialogue is, on the hand, a work of fiction. Let me make it clear I believe age should have nothing when one is falling in love. Just ensure it's within the legal age, though.

Update on 15/11: the hostage is revealed to be a Singaporean.

A man's obsessive love for his former girlfriend could prove fatal. He now faces the death sentence.

On his 23rd birthday, which coincidentally fell on Friday the 13th, he tried to win back his former lover and employer, a 35-year-old owner of a hair salon.

The love-struck birthday boy decided to hold the woman, a Singaporean, hostage at gunpoint in her outlet in Taman Kosas in Ampang for over two hours before surrendering.

Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Jalil Hassan said the man committed three serious offences and could face the mandatory death penalty under Section 3 of the Firearms (Increased Penalties) Act 1971.

"Under the Act, the death penalty may be imposed for discharging a firearm with the intent to cause death or hurt.

"He also could be charged with wrongful confinement under Section 342 of the Penal Code," he told The Star, adding that the man did not have a licence for the firearm.

Police seized a German-made Walther P99 semi-automatic pistol from the man, who bought the weapon in Penang for RM20,000 (S$8,206) two days before coming here.

The pistol is believed to have been smuggled from Thailand where the man visited frequently.

ACP Abdul Jalil said the man, who was intoxicated when he was arrested and tested positive for drugs, was nabbed for vehicle theft in Penang four years ago.

It is learnt that the man was the woman's bodyguard-cum-driver and salon caretaker.

The couple had been seeing each other since January.

However, several weeks ago, the man was given the sack by the woman, who also ended their relationship.

The single woman is said to be in a relationship with another man.

In the incident, the man arrived at the hair salon at about 9.30am and waited in his car for over an hour before storming into the building.

When his ex-girlfriend refused to speak to him, a shouting match and struggle ensued, during which he assaulted her.

During the argument, the man accused the woman of lending him a Nissan Fairlady belonging to her new boyfriend, although she had told him it was a rented car.

When two workers tried to stop him, he whipped out a pistol and fired three shots into the ceiling.

The frightened workers fled the double-storey shop lot and called the police.

Police coaxed him into surrendering at 1.30pm after informing him that the shop lot was surrounded.
