ISKANDAR PU­TERI: A 54-year-old woman went through a 40-minute or­deal at the hands of six rob­bers who cov­ered her face with a cloth, as­saulted her, took her for a ride and robbed her of her car and valu­ables worth more than RM40,000 on Satur­day.

Iskandar Pu­teri dis­trict po­lice deputy chief, DSP Is­mail Dol­lah said the vic­tim’s night­mare started about 7.45pm when she was wait­ing be­side her car for a friend near a round­about in Bukit In­dah 2.

A car sud­denly stopped near her car and six men, armed with sharp ob­jects and a steer­ing lock, got out of the car, he added.

They forced the vic­tim to en­ter the front pas­sen­ger seat of her car.

One of them got be­hind the wheel while two others sat at the back. The other three went into their car. Is­mail said the men cov­ered her face with a dark cloth, as­saulted her and robbed her of her hand­phone, watch, gold chain, gold ring, a watch and RM100 cash.

Af­ter the ter­ror ride, the men forced her out of the car at Jalan Tangki Air Susur 4 near Jalan Tun Abd Razak be­fore speed­ing off.

Is­mail said the vic­tim walked some 500m be­fore seek­ing help from a work­shop helper.

“A po­lice pa­trol car picked her up 10 min­utes later,” he added.

He said a spe­cial team has been set up to hunt for the six rob­bers.
