Petaling Jaya district police chief ACP Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal has warmed Malaysians’ hearts online after he visited a teenager who works at a burger stall on Jalan Nuri in Seksyen 7, Kota Damansara
Nik Ezanee visited the humble roadside burger stall after learning 14-year-old Muhammad Nor Faizal was recently robbed while he was working.
According to Petaling Jaya District Police’s Facebook page, the 1am incident happened when Nor Faizal excused himself to go to the toilet, and when he returned, he realised his smartphone, cash, and other items were stolen.
“Out of goodwill, Petaling Jaya’s district police headquarters donated a cell phone to encourage the 14-year-old teen to remain resilient when he faces challenges in life,” the post read.
Based on a two-minute-and-14-second long video, Nik Ezanee can be seen handing a Samsung A01 smartphone to the teen.
It is learnt that Nor Faizal works part-time at the burger stall as he is currently on school holidays
When Nik Ezanee gave the teen the smartphone, the district police chief praised him for being hardworking, before imparting some wisdom to him.
“Don’t take drugs and don’t join any gang at school. Can you promise me to do that?” Nik Ezanee said.
He then commended Nor Faizal again for his tenacity because despite being robbed, the teen still insists on coming to work.
