Kuala Lumpur, May 21 (IANS) Sex before money - that seemed to be on the minds of a group of five armed robbers who struck at a house clad only in their underclothes and face masks, a newspaper report said Wednesday. The five men broke into a house, tied up its four occupants, then searched the house for the Indonesian maid instead of the loot.
They did not like the maid, so they beat her up and then robbed the entire family, The Star newspaper reported.
Miri town police are hunting for the group of foreigners who escaped with more than 10,000 ringgit ($312) in cash and belongings.
This is the third incident of its kind in Malaysia in the last one week.
Earlier, a young man was seen climbing into the back window of a house. Neighbours alerted the police, who found the intruder in bed with the owner’s daughter. Both are facing prosecution.
Before that, a housewife complained to the police that a thief lay besides her in the middle of the night. She became suspicious and checked the next room, where she found her husband fast asleep. When she raised an alarm, the thief gathered his clothes, the things he had stolen and jumped out of the window.
