Update:- Could be a report of the same incident?
A robber, believed to be a foreigner, was shot dead when he tried to attack police with a parang during a botched robbery attempt at a house in Taman Desa Ros, Ampangan, near Seremban this morning.
Negeri Sembilan police chief Osman Salleh said during the 4am incident, police who received information of an attempt by robbers to break into a house, arrived at the scene and found three suspects trying to cut through the fence of a house.
"When police arrived, the three suspects who were trying to cut through the fence tried to escape in different directions. However, one of them suddenly came charging at police with a parang.
"Despite repeated warnings, the suspect continued to charge and police had to shoot him. Two others managed to escape," he said adding that the body was later sent to the Tuanku Ja'afar Hospital here.
"The suspect who was wearing a ski-mask and gloves had a parang and a screw driver with him.
"Police also found a cutter. We believe the suspects had come in a car and one of them was waiting in the car.
"The dead is believed to be a foreigner in his 30s because no identity documents were found on him," he said.
Osman said initial investigations revealed that they belonged to a group called 'Kumpulan Gemuk' comprising foreigners who had carried out a number of robberies in the area.
He added that the gang was believed to be involved in more than 26 armed robberies in Paroi and Rahang.
