IPOH - Three masked men, using fake pistols, robbed a moneychanger outlet at Jalan Mustafa Al Bakri here of RM2mil (S$645,640) in numerous foreign currencies.

Ipoh OCPD Asst Comm Sum Chang Keong said the incident occurred at about 6.45pm on Tuesday when the shop was about to close.

"The three masked men, who were also wearing full-faced helmets, stormed into the shop, held up a security guard and seized his pump gun.
