KUALA LUMPUR: Borrowing books was the last thing on the mind of two masked robbers who struck the National Library cafeteria on Jalan Tun Razak here Friday afternoon.
The robbers strode into the library's cafeteria, robbed its operator of RM3,000, the first time robbers had struck at the library building.
The robbers, who were clad in blue jackets and wearing red helmets, were armed with a machete in the 1.30pm incident.
The duo also demanded cafeteria operator Mahsuri Hassan give up a bracelet and necklace she was wearing.
When Mahsuri, 50, refused and screamed for help, one of them took the cash register and emptied it of RM3,000, a mobile phone and a few cheques before fleeing from the cafeteria.
"Only 10 customers and a female worker were present during the robbery which occurred during Friday prayers," she said.
She said a report was lodged at the Tun Razak police station about 2pm.
Mahsuri has been operating the cafeteria business for the past three years.
Meanwhile, National Library director-general Datuk Raslin Abu Bakar said it was the first time a robbery had occurred in the building. - Bernama
