JOHOR BARU: A moneychanger was robbed of RM170,000 in various currencies at the carpark of a hypermarket in Jalan Skudai on Wednesday night. 

The 35-year-old man had closed his shop at 9.30pm and was about to get into his Proton Wira parked near a guardhouse when three men, armed with a pistol and parang, approached him.  

Johor Baru (South) OCPD Senior Asst Comm II Hashim Yusof said the robbers threatened the victim and forced him to hand over the money. 

“The victim handed over a school bag, with RM40,000, S$50,000 and USD5,000,” he said. 

He said the robbers believed to be between 25 and 35 years old, drove off in the victim’s car. 

The victim lodged a police report and two hours later police detained two suspects.  

Those with information can contact the police at 07-223 2222 or the nearest police station.
