Lorry driver robbed of RM5,000 at petrol station

PETALING JAYA: A lorry driver was robbed of RM5,000 when he was refuelling his vehicle at a petrol station in Klang.

The victim had stopped at the station in Persiaran Tengku Ampuan Rahimah at 9pm on Sunday when seven men in three cars approached him.

They cornered the victim before taking his sling bag containing the cash as well as the lorry keys.

The robbers escaped in their own cars but left the lorry driver unharmed.

South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Kamarul Zaman Mamat said police managed to track down three of the suspects more than four hours later based on the description given by the victim.

The three – aged 26, 27 and 28 – were arrested after a 30-minute car chase in Klang town.

“The three suspects have previous criminal records for robbery.

“We are still on the hunt for the other accomplices,” he said yesterday.

ACP Kamarul Zaman urged anyone with information to contact the nearest police station as soon as possible.
