Security Guard Slashed, Cashier Hurt By Curry Powder In Robbery By Four Men
South Johor Baharu District Police Chief ACP Sulaiman Salleh said in the incident which occurred at about 4.40pm, the security guard, 34, and cashier, 22, were on their way to their business premises at the terminal after withdrawing money from a bank.
"Four masked men approached them in a car and threw the curry powder and slashed the right side of the guard's midriff with a parang," he said when contacted today.
Sulaiman said the suspects then ran off with two bags containing almost RM300,000 in cash and escaped in a dark-coloured car.
He added that police personnel who were mobilised later succeeded in detaining two of them, aged in their 20s and 30s, at about 8.30pm while effort was still on-going to find the other two.
He said the security guard had been sent to Sultanah Aminah Hospital here and was reported to be in stable condition while the cashier did not suffer any serious injuries in his eyes.
