Former deputy education minister scares off robber at home

Former deputy education minister Datuk Hon Choon Kim scared off a robber with a gun at his house in Seremban, major Chinese dailies reported.

Hon, who was in his bedroom, took out his gun when he heard his 20-year-old maid scream for help at about 10am on Thursday, reported Sin Chew Daily.

The robber, who was in the living room, tried to attack Hon with a parang.

However, the suspect and his accomplice fled after seeing Hon armed with the gun.

According to the maid, the two ­robbers sneaked into the compound while she was in the ­garden.

One of them, she said, then grabbed and pushed her into the house.

Hon's wife Datin Lee Siew Kian and his daughter, who were in the house during the attempted ­robbery, also escaped unhurt.
