Contractor robbed twice within an hour

KUALA LUMPUR - Dissatisfied with the RM4,000 (S$1,557) handed over by their kidnap victim, a gang of five men went back to his apartment in Kajang and ransacked the place.

It is learnt that the victim, a 26-year-old contractor, was walking to his apartment unit in Sungai Jelok, Kajang, at about 3am on Tuesday when the men surrounded him and forced him into a multi-purpose vehicle.

A police source said the gang then demanded that the contractor hand over his ATM card and PIN number.

“The man refused at first but acceded to their demands when one of the men held a parang to his neck. The gang then drove him to a nearby ATM where the man withdrew RM4,000 from his account and handed the money over,” said the source.

Unhappy with their loot, the gang drove the contractor back to his apartment and ransacked it.

“Initial investigation revealed that the gang stole a laptop, mobile phone and two tiling machines.

“After robbing him, the gang forced him back into the vehicle and drove him to Hulu Langat before dumping him by the roadside,” said the source.

The entire incident happened within an hour.

In another case, a hawker lost an estimated RM10,000 after a gang of three men broke into his house in Sungai Chua.

It is learnt that the robbery took place at 6am on Tuesday while the hawker was at work.

His older sister, who was in the house during the robbery, rushed to the market where he was working to inform him of the incident.

The hawker later told the police that he had seen a car being driven near his house in the morning before he left for work.
