KAJANG: Singer Mawi suffered losses of RM10,000 when four men, believed to be Indonesian nationals, armed with machetes and knives, broke into his three-storey bungalow in Bangi Golf Resort here early Monday.
Mawi, whose real name isAsmawi Ani, 31, his wife, Ekin or Norashikin Rahman, 33, their new-born baby girl, Cahaya Malaika, his mother-in-law Fatimah Saad, 56, grandmother Salmah Sahar, 77, and a maid, were also tied by their hands and legs, while the robbers ransacked the house at about 4am.
He said that after about 20 minutes, the four men, three of whom were wearing masks, escaped with the grandmother's gold necklace, four mobile phones and cash worth about RM10,000.
"My wife and I were awakened by loud bangs on our bedroom's door. At first, we thought it was her grandmother, but as soon as Ekin opened the door, one of the suspects held her at knife point and asked for her jewellery," the Akademi Fantasia 3 champion told a press conference at the scene Monday.
Mawi said the suspects then pushed Ekin, Salmah and their maid into the bedroom before tying their hands and legs with ropes.
"After that, the suspects continued ransacking the room for jewellery and cash before leaving the bungalow through the kitchen's window," he said.
Mawi said he used his teeth to loosen the ropes around his hands before freeing his family and calling the police.
Kajang police chief ACP Abdul Rashid Abdul Wahab, when contacted, confirmed the incident and said that the case was being investigated under Section 395 and 397 of the Penal Code. - Bernama
