IPOH: A sundry shop owner got the shock of her life when she woke up and found a masked man brandishing a parang at her in her Cameron Highlands shophouse.
The 23-year-old woman had woken up at 4pm on Wednesday when she heard a loud noise and went out to investigate.
“When she saw the man, she screamed but was forced to keep quiet by the robber, who later rounded up her three family members into a room,” Cameron Highlands OCPD Deputy Supt Wan Mohd Zahari Wan Busu said.
“The man and his three accomplices then ransacked the place before fleeing in the victim’s van,” he said.
DSP Wan Mohd Zahari said the suspects made off with valuables and jewellery worth about RM88,000.
The van was found abandoned a few kilometres from the scene at about midnight the same day.
