KUANTAN (Bernama) – A 14-year-old student is in a trauma after being robbed by three men while she was tending to her family’s shop at Kampung Sungai Karang Darat.
Kuantan deputy district police chief Supt Abdul Aziz Ahmad told Bernama that the robbery occurred about 1.35pm when three men entered the shop and pretended to be customers.
“After finding nobody else in the shop, one of the suspects then told the girl to be quiet and that they wanted to rob her,” he said, adding that the robber fled after taking the money and some items.
He said the girl, who was traumatised by the incident, only screamed, which alerted her mother, five minutes after the robbers fled.
Abdul Aziz said police believed the suspects were local residents and urged those with information on the robbery to contact the nearest police station.
