PETALING JAYA - A restaurant owner who extended the operating hours despite other proprietors advising him not to do so, was robbed by a group of parang-wielding robbers early on Sunday.
Lee, who works at the restaurant located on Jalan SS14/2 in Subang Jaya, said the restaurant had extended its operating hours from midnight to 4am starting this month.
"Other shops warned us, saying that it was dangerous to open until so late," he said.
The warnings came true when several men wielding machetes showed up at around 2.40am on Sunday in a white car.
"The boss and a staff member were sitting outside and there were two customers in the shop. At least three men got out of the car and robbed the restaurant of RM2,000 (S$716) cash and drove off," he said yesterday.
No one was hurt during the incident and a police report was lodged.
However, Lee said the restaurant was not changing its operating hours and would continue to operate until 4am.
Subang Jaya acting deputy OCPD Deputy Supt Azman Shariat confirmed the robbery and said police were investigating the case.
