Daylight armed robbery in Kuchai Lama

A gang of robbers armed with lethal weapons, including a firearm, made off with about RM10,000 after slashing one of their victims on the head and neck near a bank in Jalan Kuchai Lama yesterday.

The five-minute incident occurred at 9.15am when the victims, who worked at a cybercafe nearby, was about to reach the bank to bank-in the cafe’s takings.

A source said the robbers came in two cars, a Proton Gen 2 and Waja, and blocked the victims' car, a Perodua Myvi.

Four of the robbers, armed with pistol, hammer and machete, charged at the victims, injuring one of them on the head and neck. After grabbing the money from the victims, the robbers fled in the Gen 2, leaving the Waja behind.

Checks on the Waja showed it was stolen in Damansara last Monday and a police forensics team had also lifted fingerprints from the car.
