SUBANG JAYA: Seven parang-wielding robbers terrorised several businesses in Puchong in an hour-long robbing spree beginning at 5.30am.
They made off with approximately RM9,000, seven cellular phones, some jewellery and a school bag after hitting five restaurants and a hotel that were just opening for business yesterday.
One of the victims, a noodle seller in her 60s who only wanted to be known as Kuan, said: “They demanded my wallet and I gave it to them. But when I pleaded with them to return my IC, they kicked me in my chest.”
ACP Zainal said police were checking CCTV footage from the hotel to identify the robbers, who had moved about using a car and a motorcycle.
He urged anyone with information on the robbers to contact the police immediately.
Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo, who met the victims, said: “It is high time police took a more aggressive stance on crimes like this in Puchong and increase patrols in the area.”
