Feb 26 (Bernama) — Police believe the same gang was responsible for several armed robberies in Kota Damansara over the past few weeks.
Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Arjunaidi Mohamed said the gang, comprising locals and foreigners, used almost similar modus operandi when robbing their victims, including children, at night and early in the morning.
He said the police had received four reports of armed robbery at Section 8 Kota Damansara this month alone and were trying to track down the gang.
“We believe the gang members also live nearby,” he told reporters after attending a dialogue with the residents in Section 8 Kota Damansara, here on Friday.
Last Wednesday, a writer and his family were robbed of jewellery, cash and two laptop computers by three men who entered his house in the area.
At the dialogue, Arjunaidi advised the residents to alert the police immediately if they saw suspicious-looking individuals in their housing estate.
