Kuantan: A rubber purchasing company owner was robbed of RM15,000 and valuables by three men armed with a pistol-like object and parang, near here, today.
The 39-year-old victim and two workers had just opened the premises at 12th mile, Jaya Gading, Jalan Gambang when the incident took place at 7am.
Pahang CID secretariat officer, ASP Noor Asyikin Shamsuri said three men on two motorcycles, wearing full-faced helmets, came, claiming they were selling rubber.
He said one of them whipped out an object which looked like a pistol and aimed it at the victim.
"The victim and his workers panicked but kept quiet. They were ordered to hand over their money and valuables," he told reporters, here, today.
Noor Asyikin said the victim was robbed of RM15,000 belonging to his company, a mobile phone, two gold chains and a laptop computer.
She said the robbers, in their early 30s, fled on their motorcycles. The victim and the two workers were, however, unhurt. The case is being investigated under Section 395/397 of the Penal Code. -- Bernama
