TANGKAK: Four notorious robbers not only took away cash and valuables during a house break-in but raped the owner’s 50-year-old wife in full view of the man and his teenage daughter.
The robbers, believed to be Indonesians, broke into the house in Kampung Sengkang near Bukit Gambir at about 3.30am on Tuesday.
The robbers, armed with parang, forced themselves into the house while the couple and four of their children were asleep.
“They tied them before ransacking and taking RM1,300 and jewellery worth about RM5,000,” said police.
One of the robbers decided to force himself upon the woman, aged about 50, in front of her husband and their 13-year old daughter.
Ledang police chief Supt. Harun Idris said police rounded up 22 illegal immigrants in follow-up action.
He said police were compiling information on the incident and investigating those detained to determine whether they were involved in the robbery-cum-rape.
