[VIDEO] It's Scary How Nonchalant These 2 Men Were While Robbing Women At A PJ Laundromat
It was supposed to be a normal laundry night for two friends at a 24-hour laundromat at a residential township in northern Petaling Jaya
The two friends, both women, were on their phones while waiting for their clothes to be washed at the laundromat in Jalan Ara, Bandar Sri Damansara around midnight on Friday, 27 December.
However, the night turned into a nightmare as both the women were robbed by two men, one of whom was wielding a wooden stick
The two men, both masked, committed the act at around 12.10am, according to the timestamp shown on the footage captured in the 24-hour laundromat's surveillance camera.
While none of the victims were harmed, it was terrifying how casually calm and relaxed both the men were while committing the crime
The whole incident was captured on the laundromat's surveillance camera.
A one minute and 22-seconds long footage of the incident has since been uploaded on social media pages and viewed over half a million times with one of the uploads receiving over 4,300 shares.
In the footage, the two men with their faces covered can be seen walking into the laundromat, approaching the two friends, grabbing their personal belongings and simply walking out like they were out for a stroll.
They also appeared to have robbed a man who was at the laundromat, however, there was no mention of a male victim in any of the media reports about the robbery on Friday night.
After having grabbed whatever they could from their victims, the two men escaped the scene by stealing the 33-year-old female victim's yellow-coloured Perodua Myvi that was parked outside.
According to Petaling Jaya District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner (ACP) Mohd Zani Che Din, the victims were robbed of six mobile phones, car keys, house keys, a car, and cash RM200
The suspects also robbed them of other items such as personal identification documents, etc.
Both the suspects have since been arrested, reported Astro Awani yesterday, 28 December.
"The case is being investigated under Section 395/397 of the Penal Code," ACP Mohd Zani said, adding that the 33-year-old victim had lodged a report an hour after the incident.
