KUALA LUMPUR: A gang that drives around in a silver Mercedes Benz has robbed two businessmen of RM98,000 in separate smash-and-grab cases on the same day.
One of the victims was a 33-year-old Korean expatriate on his way to Genting Highlands while the other was a 28-year-old Datuk, who wants to remain anonymous.
The gang’s double heist began at 12.30pm on Thursday in Jalan Bandar Rawang 12, Rawang, Selangor, when they targeted the Datuk who had stopped at a shoplot to purchase credit for his cellphone.
He had earlier withdrawn RM48,000 to pay his employees and had kept the cash in a bag under the driver’s seat.
“I had just got down from the car when the Mercedes pulled up and four men came out and started smashing the windows of my car.
“They grabbed my bag under the seat and also took the laptop in the boot,” he said.
The robbers were described as dressed smartly in office wear and were not wearing masks.
In the other case, the grab occurred after the Korean expatriate had just withdrawn RM50,000 and was on his way to Genting Highlands.
The Mercedes Benz and a Proton Waja blocked the expatriate’s car from the rear and front, forcing the Korean to stop on the Karak Highway at 4.30pm.
