Robber rapes woman in front of hubby and daughter

TANGKAK: Four notorious robbers not only took away cash and valuables during a house break-in but raped the owner’s 50-year-old wife in full view of the man and his teenage daughter.

The robbers, believed to be Indonesians, broke into the house in Kampung Sengkang near Bukit Gambir at about 3.30am on Tuesday.

The robbers, armed with parang, forced themselves into the house while the couple and four of their children were asleep.

“They tied them before ransacking and taking RM1,300 and jewellery worth about RM5,000,” said police.

One of the robbers decided to force himself upon the woman, aged about 50, in front of her husband and their 13-year old daughter.

Ledang police chief Supt. Harun Idris said police rounded up 22 illegal immigrants in follow-up action.

He said police were compiling information on the incident and investigating those detained to determine whether they were involved in the robbery-cum-rape.

It was the part about the robbers probably being Indonesian that tipped me off to this crime taking place in Johor. (Here‘s why.)

Small consolation that the daughter wasn’t also raped.

Update from The Star 6 June 2010:

Police: We know identity of robber-rapists

TANGKAK: Police have identified the four Indonesians believed to have robbed a house here and raped a 50-year-old woman.

Ledang OCPD Supt Harun Idris said police have launched a massive hunt for the four, who are believed to still be in the Muar area.

“We have rounded up 22 illegal immigrants to ascertain where the suspects are. We are confident of nabbing them soon,” he said yesterday.

On Tuesday, four notorious robbers not only took away cash and valuables during a house break-in but raped the owner’s 50-year-old wife in full view of the man and his teenage daughter.

The robbers broke into the house in Kampung Sengkang near Bukit Gambir here at about 3.30am.

The robbers, armed with parang, forced themselves into the house while the couple and four of their children were asleep.

“They are notorious and dangerous. We will make sure they are brought to justice,” Supr Harun said.

He urged anyone with information to contact the police hotline at 07-2212999 or the nearest police station.

Notorious, dangerous, and at large for who knows how long.
