KUALA LUMPUR: One man showed up at an apartment, bearing a hamper of fruits and an invitation card.
“It happened on Jan 21 at about 2.50pm when a man came to my brother’s apartment in Taman Sri Sentosa,” said businessman Datuk Seri P. Krishnamurti.
He said only his sister-in-law and her two grandchildren were home at the time.
“At first she was suspicious but the man mentioned my brother’s name, so she let him in.
“Suddenly, another two men barged in as well,” he said, relating how members from the Hamper Gang had robbed them.
The gang members quickly searched through the home while one of them snatched a gold chain worn by the victim.
“They found a safe box and asked my sister-in-law to open it but she refused and told them that she did not have the key.
“That is when they picked up the two-year-old grandson and put a knife to his neck,” he said.
Afraid that they might kill him, the woman quickly unlocked the safe box which contained jewellery valued at RM100,000.
The robbers grabbed the valuables and fled. The drama lasted about 10 minutes.
Krishnamurti said he was glad that the Gang had been captured.
“However, it is sad that the young robbers who could have had a bright future had gone down the wrong path,” he said.
