KUANTAN: Three robbers locked a teacher, two children and her septuagenarian mother inside a bathroom before ransacking their house in Karak near here yesterday.
In the 10am incident in Taman Hijau, the trio took away a laptop, four mobile phones, jewellery and RM500.
After the robbers left, the 49-year-old teacher, two daughters, aged 13 and 20, and 75-year-old mother spent about 10 minutes to force open the door.
The teacher telephoned her husband for assistance before lodging a report at the Karak police headquarters.
Bentong acting police chief DSP Mohamad Mansor Mohd Nor said today, the robbers rushed into the house after training a parang at the septuagenarian's neck while she was reading a newspaper in the porch. -- BERNAMA
