KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 24 — Police today released sketches and several photos of the suspects believed to have been involved in a robbery at a goldsmith outlet in Kepong, here, last Sunday.
Sentul district police chief ACP Beh Eng Lai said the sketches were based on witness testimony while some pictures of the suspects and the motorcycles used were taken from the premises’ closed-circuit television camera.
He said the two motorcycles used in the robbery were identified as black and turquoise Yamaha Y150ZRs and were found to have fake registration numbers.
“Anyone who has information related to the suspects can channel information to the Sentul Police Headquarters Control Centre at 03-40482206 and the case will be investigated according to Section 395/397 of the Penal Code,” he said in a statement today.
In the incident, the suspects, who wore face masks and helmets and armed with hammers and axes, stormed into the outlet and escaped with several necklaces and bracelets worth about RM50,000.
In a separate development, police are tracking down eight local men suspected of being involved in a fight at the Kuala Lumpur Setapak Jaya City Hall Flats car park, here, last Sunday.
