Robber shot as he tries to ram stolen car into cops

PETALING JAYA - A man wanted for robbery was shot in the shoulder when he attempted to ram a stolen car into a police vehicle while trying to escape arrest.

Police were hot on the heels of the man, who was part of a duo that robbed a two-storey terrace house in Bandar Kinrara, Puchong, at 7.45am on Thursday, when the incident occurred, said Serdang OCPD Asst Comm Abdul Razak Elias.

"The two men, in their 20s, had earlier broke into the master bedroom and ordered a sleeping 46-year-old woman to wake up.

"She was home alone as her husband was at work and her child was at school," he said.

ACP Abdul Razak said the men threatened the woman with a knife before proceeding to ransack her belongings.

The men stole a handphone, money, jewellery and branded handbags from the room before taking off in a Volkswagen Beetle parked in the house compound. The loot amounted to more than RM200,000 (S$77,000).
