Robbed RM100,000 at KK traffic lights

KOTA KINABALU - A 60-year-old woman who just retired from the civil service will not be able to enjoy her hard-earned pension money of RM100,000 – she was robbed in broad daylight by two men at the traffic lights opposite Wawasan Plaza, here, Tuesday.

The victim withdrew all the cash from a bank at Api-Api Centre at about 9.20am and intended to invest all in the Amanah Saham Bumiputra (ASB) when the robbers struck 30 minutes later.

Speaking to Daily Express here on the same day, the victim said all the money was kept in a big envelope placed inside her handbag which she put on the car floor.

Upon reaching the traffic lights on the second lane from the right, she was shocked when a man smashed her left car window with a sharp object before grabbing her handbag.

She tried to stop the robber until some cash fell on the road but failed. She sustained wounds on her thumbs and index finger in the process.

The robber and his accomplice fled with the envelope containing her money on a motorcycle.

She also hit the rear of a Honda car in front of her Perodua Kembara in the incident.

To her disappointment, other motorists who witnessed the incident did not even bother to help her.

A police report was lodged.
