KUALA LUMPUR: A robbery at a laundromat did not lead to a chase, as claimed on social media, say police.
Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Farouk Esha said that the incident on Oct 22 saw a laundromat along Jalan H-3 in Taman Melawati being robbed by two men.
"When the police arrived at the scene, we were informed that two men had entered the premises and had taken a donation box that was on a counter.
"They drove off in a Myvi, number plate unknown. Claims of the robbery leading to a chase between the police and the suspects as stated on social media are untrue," he said.
He added that the box only had coins and the losses were minimal.
"As of now, no one has made a police report on the incident. We will increase patrols at the scene.
"We urge the public to come forward and make police reports if they find themselves victims of crimes so that the police can conduct the appropriate investigations," he said.
