Robbers attack same victim twice for refusing to pay protection money
Petaling Jaya: A mini market chain owner, who had earlier refused to pay protection money to a group of gangsters, was robbed for the second time on Tuesday. This time the victim also lost a finger in the brutal attack.
The victim, identified as Lee Cheng Heng, underwent surgery at the Sime Darby Medical Centre to re-attach his finger yesterday but it is not known if the surgery was a success.
The robbery took place at victim’s office, located some 100 metres away from the mini market which was robbed by the same four suspects on July 27.
On July 26, the gangsters had confronted Lee, 40, at opening of the mini market and demanded protection money. Lee refused to give in.
The following day, the gang returned. armed with parang and robbed Lee or RM12,000 at the mini market. They also thrashed up the place.
Lee thought that the worse was over but he had a rude shock on Tuesday when the four robbers returned and confronted him at his office at about 8pm.
Lee was with six foreign workers when three armed men entered the premises while their accomplice waited outside in a Honda Civic, the same car which was use din the earlier robbery.
The robbers, who were wearing jackets and full-faced helmets, rounded up the workers. Two of them then confronted Lee.
Lee’s brother, Rong Chang said after the first robbery, his brother kept a small parang to protect himself.
“When the three suspects barged in, he reached for the weapon and tried to fight them off. However, he was overpowered by the two men,” said Rong Chang.
“He lost a finger in the scuffle after one of the suspects slashed him.” The robbers left empty-handed.
“We believe that the four robbers were the same men who robbed my brother two week weeks ago. They used the same car and were dressed the same,” said the brother.
“A witness took down the registration number of the robbers’ car which was later handed to police.”
Lee declined to be interviewed as he was still traumatised. District police chief Assistant Commissioner Arjunaidi Mohamed confirmed the incident.
