A mother and her two daughters had a traumatizing experience after two robbers broke into their house in Pasir Puteh, Kelantan on Sunday.
The robbers assaulted Hat Tema Mat Zin, 58, and one of them tried to rape her daughter, Nur Shafiqa Lah, 22, in the 2pm incident.
Investigations revealed the duo broke into the house while Shafiqa was in the shower. Tema was in the living room while her other daughter, 18-year-old Nur Shafatini Lah, was in her room.
The robbers, wearing helmets with visors, attacked the mother upon entering the house in Wakaf Berangan Sri Aman.
â€œOne of them kicked open the bathroom door as Shafiqa was in the shower and dragged her out to the kitchen where her mother was writhing on the floor in pain,â€ a police source said.
Shafiqa was told by the robbers to remove her motherâ€™s ring.
â€œAfter she removed the ring, one of the men took her to a room upstairs and attempted to rape her but was called back to the living room by his accomplice,â€ the source said.
Shafiqa locked herself in and called for help from the window.
The robbers fled when they heard her crying for help. They escaped with a ring, a bracelet and a mobile phone.
Throughout the incident, Shafatini locked herself in her room and hid under the bed.
Tema suffered injuries below her right eye and cuts on her left cheek, while Shafiqa suffered cuts on her face.
They were taken to Hospital Tengku Anis and will be referred to Hospital Sains Malaysia for further treatment.
Pasir Puteh police chief DSP Abdul Rozak Mohammad confirmed the incident and said police have launched a hunt for the robbers.MYNEWSHUB
