PETALING JAYA: Two gun-toting robbers fired a shot at the ceiling of a bank in Taman Puchong Prima here before getting away with about RM750,000.
They also shot at a passing car before escaping.
The two entered the bank brandishing revolvers at about 1.50pm yesterday.
Selangor deputy CID chief Asst Comm Khaw Kok Chin said one of the robbers forced an employee into the customer service room and asked him to open the safe, while his accomplice waited outside the room and kept watch over the bank staff and customers.
After placing all the money in a bag, the robbers left the bank, taking with them the security guard’s pump-gun, which was found about 50m from the bank.
“When they were about to get into their vehicle, they fired a shot at a car, suspecting the driver was about to knock them down,” ACP Khaw added.
However, the bullet did not hit the 60-year-old driver, who wanted to be identified only as Lim.
The robbers fled the scene in a Proton Iswara.
Lim, when met at the scene, said he was on his way back home when the incident occurred.
He said he saw the men pointing a gun at his car and he immediately ducked under the dashboard.
“Otherwise, the bullet would have hit me,” he said.
