Parang-wielding men rob retired teacher of RM40,000
KUANTAN, July 18 — Three parang-wielding men robbed a retired teacher of RM40,000, including her Proton Waja car, in an early morning robbery at her house in Kampung Sebooi, Temerloh, today.
Temerloh Police Chief ACP Mohd Noor Mansor said during the 4.30am incident, three men broke into the 59-year-old teacher’s house and tied her hands and feet with rope and covered her face with a blanket before ransacking the house.
He said the woman lived alone and one of the assailants had threatened to slit her throat with a machete.
“The three men robbed her of her jewellery, cash that was kept in a closet and also escaped with her car,” he said when contacted here.
He said she managed to untie herself after some time before alerting her neighbours and calling the police.
Mohd Noor said initial investigations revealed that the three men entered the house through the kitchen window after forcing it open. — Bernama
