CCTV footage showed a senior citizen attacked and robbed by two men while she and two friends were on their morning walk in the early hours of Monday morning.

The incident occurred at about 6.30am Taman Tambun Indah, Simpang Ampat, Penang.

A 44-second clip captured two suspects coming out of a car and chasing a senior citizen, 66, and her two friends, aged 70 and 78.

The victim’s two companions stumbled to the ground and sustained minor injuries to their hands and knees. Both were given treatment at a nearby clinic.

The victim was pinned down and beaten when the suspects relieved her of her jewellery. She was sent to the Sungai Bakap Hospital for outpatient treatment.

The suspects got away with silvery jewellery worth RM200.

OCPD Supt Shafee Abd Samad said the victims were unable to identify the robbers as it was “quite dark” at the time, The Star reported.

“We managed to obtain a CCTV footage of the robbery but it was too blur to make out the registration number.

“The case is being investigated as causing hurt while committing a robbery under Section 394 of the Penal Code,” he was quoted as saying yesterday.
