KUANTAN: A man wearing a black jacket and a hat, with a parang as weapon, was believed to have successfully robbed two convenience stores which were located two kilometres apart from each other within four hours.
In the first robbery at 5.20 pm, a convenience store at Jalan Air Putih here lost RM80 when the suspect took off, said Pahang CID officer ASP Noor Asyikin
"The suspect, aged in his 20's, approached a 19-year-old girl who was working at the shop and pretended to ask for cigarrete, but the suspect suddenly
brought out a parang and aimed it at her before taking away money from the cash register," she told reporters here, today.
Two kilometres away from the shop, a convenience store at Jalan Haji Ahmad, here was also robbed, believed to be by the same suspect at around 9.30 pm, she said.
The suspect fled with RM69 cash using the same modus operandi, she said.
Noor Asyikin said both cases were classified under the section 397 of the Penal Code and police are currently looking for the suspect. -- BERNAMA
