Two guys got arrested by the police for robbing a convenience store of RM1,000.

Sibu OCPD announced that the two suspected were arrested from a house in Jalan Bukit Lima timur just one day after the robbery.

He said at about 6am on Christmas Day, the 17-year old attendant of the store located on Jalan Aman was at work when a man showed up in full-face motorcycle helmet.

“The man told the attendant that he wanted to buy a handphone reload coupon. As he had no money, he said he would come back later,” he added.

It is said that when he came with another person, one of them took out a knife and demanded that the victim hand money over to them.

“As he was scared for his safety, the attendant gave them RM1,000. The two then suspects rushed out and fled,” he said.

After viewing CCTV footage of the incident, police went to a house along Jalan Bukit Lima Timur, and this led to the arrest of the jobless duo. The other suspect was 22 years old.

ACP Stanley said they would be remanded under Section 395/397 of the Penal Code for armed robbery.
