A woman in Selangor was picking her child up from kindergarten when she was robbed by two men.

The 46-year-old housewife had parked her car near the school at 11.15am on Monday.

When she alighted from her vehicle, two men wearing full-faced motorcycle helmets got out from a nearby car. One of the men brandished a metre-long machete.

Upon seeing them, the startled woman froze in fear.

Sped off

The unarmed robber snatched her car keys from her hand. The duo then sped off in the two cars.

Subang Jaya Assistant Commissioner Yahaya Ramli said the victim was unhurt. 

The woman lost her purse and her mobile phone along with the car.

He said the car that the suspects used had been reported stolen on Monday.

“The victim isn’t able to identify the two robbers,” he said, urging witnesses to call the police.
