Two Indonesians suspected to be involved in at least 17 robbery cases in Petaling Jaya and Subang Jaya have been shot dead in Puncak Perdana yesterday morning. They have been identified as 30-year-old Don and 20-year-old Ferdi.
Yesterday, police were sent to a house in Perdana Heights when a report was made on the two men trying to break in. After a house alarm was set off, the men were on the run.
At a water tank, police found a motorcycle parked there and decided to hide in ambush. The suspects returned to the motorcycle soon after and took out parang when confronted by the officers. Both suspects were eventually shot dead after a short fight.
Police recovered two parang, one screwdriver, one mask, one cap, some watches, mobile phones and cash from the bodies. The bodies were sent to Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang for a post-mortem.
The suspects are believed to be part of an armed robbery gang which two other members were shot dead by police last August at Kayangan Heights. They have been reported to have caused hurt to robbery victims.
