Malaysian police after ninja-like robbers

The two ninja-like robbers caught on CCTV.

KAJANG - Police are hot on the heels of two 'ninjas' who allegedly robbed an elderly married couple in a bungalow at Country Heights Resort here.

A closed circuit television (CCTV) footage revealed that the two suspects, believed to be Indonesians, were clad in ninja-like outfits when they broke into the bungalow between 5.45am and 6am Thursday.

The recording showed them moving around the bungalow in a stealthy manner.

District OCPD Asst Comm Ab Rashid Ab Wahab said the two men had snuck into the house through a back window located on the first storey.

"They used a foldable steel ladder to climb into the window. The ladder was left behind after the robbery.

"The duo knocked on the couple's bedroom door and brandished a parang at the dazed pair.

"The men tied the couple with a clothes line before ransacking through their belongings," he explained.

ACP Ab Rashid said the suspects made off with RM100,000 (S$39,027.05) worth of stolen money and valuables.

"The couple, in their 60s, alerted police of the incident at about 6.15am after breaking free from the ropes.

"They were unharmed," he added, saying that the pair were business owners.

The case is being investigated under Section 395/397 of the Penal Code for armed robbery.
