DINERS at roadside stalls in the Sentul and Kepong areas have become victims of a gang which pounced on them while they were have their meals.
In a recent incident, the gang armed with parang and sticks came in two cars and swooped on diners at a restaurant near the Tesco hypermart in Bandar Menjalara in Kepong just after midnight on Friday.
The gang targeted a group of eight men and took away cash totalling RM3,600 as well as mobile phones, ATM cards and credit cards.
About 20 minutes later, the same gang went to another eatery at nearby Jalan Metro Perdana and robbed a diner of his car, money and personal belongings. The victim also suffered light injuries.
Sentul district police chief Asst Comm Zakaria Pagan said the cars used by the robbers a Toyota Vios and a Toyota Innova were believed to have been fitted with false number plates.
