Actress Chris Tong has returned to work after she was injured by an assailant looking to car-jack her RM300,000 Mercedes-Benz SLK in Cheras, Malaysia.

The 29-year-old former beauty queen, who had acted in several local and Singaporean dramas and movies, was attacked as she walked back to her car after a meeting with a client on the night of May 23.

After she fell to the ground, the assailant -- who was believed to be alone -- tried to grab her car keys but was scared off by the barking of Tong's poodle, which attracted the attention of others nearby.

According to an on.cc report, Tong is now back working on the set of new movie Kick Ass Girls despite her wounds being visible.

Sources who spoke to the news outlet said that she used make-up to conceal the wounds.The production, which is a Hong Kong-Malaysian collaboration, also stars Chrissie Chau, Hidy Yu and La Ying, who has been described as a "bull...(which) has no idea how to be gentle at all

"The filming of a fight scene of the movie which has Chau duelling with La Ying reportedly caused the former to aggravate a leg injury, prompting her to chide her co-star.

"I didn't expect him to be like a bull, he just knew how to rush and ram. He had no idea how to be gentle at all."
