KUALA LUMPUR: Police are tracking eight people including a woman who brazenly robbed a KK Mart convenience store at Taman Kok Lian, last week.
The robbers had beaten up two of the shop’s 18-year-old workers with plastic chairs and motorcycle helmets in the 5am robbery.
One of the workers even had four beer bottles smashed over his head, leading him to require 10 stitches on his head.
Sentul police chief Assistant Commissioner R. Munusamy said a member of the public had alerted police of a commotion at the store. It was only upon arrival that the police discovered that a robbery had taken place.

A closed-circuit television (CCTV) recording showed one worker being assaulted outside the store while two other robbers went inside to target the remaining worker.
One of the robbers grabbed several beer bottles from a shelf and smashed them over the worker’s head while another robber assaulted the same worker with a motorcycle helmet.
The suspects took RM657 in cash from the cash register. Witnesses at the scene said the suspects, believed to be in their 20s, fled the scene with a car and two motorcycles.
Meanwhile, in another case, police are also hot on the heels of three men who had robbed a 7-Eleven convenience store at Kampung Batu, Batu 5, Jalan Ipoh, last month.
The three men, wielding wooden sticks, had fled with items worth RM1,300 as well as RM68 cash from the register.-nst
