As an American businessperson living in Johor I explore territories and opportunities in the region of Johor Bahru, in doing so I found myself beaten severely by a port property security guard at the SOUTHERN REGION OF MARINE DEPARTMENT, JB OFFICE near Country Garden, Danga Bay. The event sent me to the hospital and after reporting the incident to officials no action seemed to be taken against the assailant leaving him still posted at the site where citizens and tourists remain at risk for further violent attacks. Malaysia is known for violence and there is no wonder given such lack of response and consequences for violent behavior.

A fair warning to those who are seldom at home during daytimes. DO check and upgrade your locks, install CCTVs/IP CAMs. I've caught my neighbors stealing water, items and attempting burglary. Yes, that's how bad it is. I'm expecting more of these when recession kicks in. Be safe, not sorry.

I don't live JB but as a Singaporean I travel there alot to shop. Must be careful at all times of your belongings.

Personal experience, walk in groups and have your brother or father or husband at least someone to protect you. And hold on to your children tightly. I was once followed by a drug addict and he kept calling after me. I chased after my father and mother. I was glad he didn't follow me after we exited the small lane.
