Failed robbery attempt : glass display case shot 11 times failed to break
Berita Harian reported that a gunman who tried to rob a goldsmith shop in Dungun, Terengganu, had to flee empty-handed after a glass display case he shot at 11 times failed to break.
State Acting CID chief Supt K. Manoharan said the gunman had entered the shop in Jalan Sura Gate at 5.30pm on Thursday, wearing a ski mask and gloves and carrying a sling bag.
He said the man had aimed an automatic gun at the staff, who however managed to escape by running to the back of the shop. Supt Manoharan said the suspect then fired 11 shots at the glass case containing the jewellery but it did not break.
“When he failed to break the glass, he fled through the back door. “It is believed that he made his getaway in a waiting car,” he said. He added that although a closed-circuit television camera caught the gunman in his act, police have yet to identify him.
