PETALING JAYA: A 21-year-old housewife managed to fend off two robbers, thanks to the timely intervention of two policemen.

The woman was sitting in her car outside a hypermarket at Taman Connaught, Cheras at around 11.20pm on Tuesday (Aug 13) when two robbers on motorcycles approached her.

The duo quickly opened the car door and grabbed the victim's handbag and mobile phone.

"One of the robbers even punched the woman in the face, " said Cheras OCPD Asst Comm Mohamed Mokhsein Mohamed Zon when contacted on Wednesday (Aug 14).

The woman put up a struggle, kicking the car door at the robbers.

Fortunately, two policemen who were on patrol spotted the tussle and rushed to help just as one of the robbers pulled out a machete.

One of the robbers managed to get on a motorcycle and flee, while the second robber was arrested.

Police also recovered the stolen items, including RM670 in cash.

"The detained suspect, 34, tested positive for methamphetamine and amphetamines. He also has a drug record, " said ACP Mohamed Mokhsein.

Police also seized a motorcycle, a machete and small amounts of drugs.

"He has been remanded until Aug 20 for further investigation, " he said.
