Parang-Wielding Men Rob 2 Women At A Laundromat In KL
Earlier this week, two women were robbed of their valuables and money by parang-wielding robbers while they were waiting for their laundry at a self-help laundromat in Medan Idaman, Setapak
According to a report in NST Online, dated 1 September, the robbery took place on Thursday at 4.15pm and ended in seconds, with the men fleeing on motorcycles.
The incident has been confirmed by Wangsa Maju district police chief, Superintendent Noor Azmi Yusoff, who said the victims have lodged a police report.
There were four men who were on two motorcycles. They pulled up outside the laundromat when the women were sitting in the shop.
Of the four, two men, armed with parang, entered the shop and charged towards the women, who are said to be sisters, aged 35 and 41.
The two men ransacked the women's bags, stealing RM360 of cash, two mobile phones and several personal identification documents, Superintendent Noor Azmi said.
The robbers were reportedly looking for jewellery and valuables.
