Parang-wielding man robs bank of RM11,000
GEORGE TOWN: A masked man armed with two parang escaped with RM11,000 after robbing a bank at a hypermarket in Gelugor here on Thursday.
The 15-minute hold-up at the Tesco hypermarket occurred at 12.56pm.
State CID chief SAC Mazlan Kesah said the robber had earlier held up a security guard before ordering a teller to fill up an empty bag with the money.
He said the man dashed out of the bank, which had three customers and three staff members present at the time.
Mazlan believed the man might have been linked to another hold-up at the same location on Jan 15.- Bernama
