A WOMAN entered a restaurant in Kota Baru, placed an order for rice and two iced Milo and then pulled a pistol at the owner.
“Sit tight or I’ll shoot,” the female robber threatened the restaurant owner known as Kak Na, 52.
Harian Metro reported that the woman, who entered the shop at 3.45am on Tuesday, arrived in a Proton Wira which was parked in front of the restaurant.
After placing the order with Kak Na’s assistant, the robber said to be in her 20s, dashed to the car and returned with two men.
Kak Na ended up RM6,000 poorer as the robbers took her jewellery and handphone, besides the food they ordered.
> Harian Metro also reported that the body of a woman was found three months after she died, giving her neighbours a fright at the thought that they had been living next to a corpse all this while.
“This gives me palpitations. It’s hard to believe that I have been living next door to her,” said a resident.
Apparently, the 67-year-old spinster died inside the toilet of the two-storey home in Selayang, Kuala Lumpur.
The neighbour claimed that the woman lived alone and seldom mingled with the other neighbours.
A police spokesman said the case had been classified as sudden death.
Kosmo! quoted Gombak OCPD Asst Comm Ali Ahmad as saying that the body was discovered by a neighbour when he was asked by the landlord to check on the house because the woman, who was a tenant, had not been paying her bills.+
