IPOH: The police are tracking down the suspect seen in a viral video attempting to rob a house here

Ipoh OCPD Asst Comm Yahaya Hassan said the suspect in the video was seen trying to barge into the house via the front door before a person from inside the house quickly locked the door.

He said the incident had occurred on Aug 5 at about 6.40am at a house in Taman Tasek Indra.

In the video, the suspect is seen wearing a full face helmet and holding a sharp object while trying to barge into the house, before nearly slipping on a mat placed in front of the door.

A person from inside the house quickly closed the door, and the suspect is then seen leaving the porch.

“We are investigating the case under Section 393 of the Penal Code for attempted robbery, and all efforts are being made to trace the suspect,” he said.

He said those who have witnessed the incident or have any information should contact investigating officer ASP Fadli Ahmad at 019-2500 019.
