Three men disguised as monks robbed a pensioner and his family at their home in Bukit Cerakah here, escaping with goods worth at least RM40,000.
They approached the 60-year-old man, asking for leaves from a tree for prayers, before sneaking into the house minutes later at about 10.30am yesterday.
Shah Alam OCPD ACP Zahedi Ayob said the victims could not do much as the culprits, brandishing parangs, ransacked the house.
“They took a TV set, a laptop computer, some cash and jewellery before driving off in the family car,” he said.
The family was unharmed during the robbery.
