Remisier turns the tables on robbers, shoots two dead

Excerpt from Star

SUBANG JAYA: After being slashed on the head with a parang, a remisier let fly at four armed robbers, firing 15 rounds from his automatic pistol at the intruders who had forced themselves into his bungalow here.

By the time it was over, two of the robbers were dead. Another escaped with gunshot wounds but was arrested four hours later.

The dead robbers were identified as Se Swee Han, 26, from Sarawak, and So Chin Sern, 21, from Johor Baru.

State chief police officer Deputy Comm Yahaya Udin said the drama unfolded at about 6.30am when four men, armed with parangs and a pistol, jumped into the compound of the 51-year-old remisier’s house in SS19/4 and waited at the back.

“They ambushed the wife when she came out to wash one of their cars parked in the porch before forcing her upstairs to where her husband was sleeping.

“The husband was rudely awakened and one of the robbers who wore a mask ransacked the room.

Police carrying one of the dead robbers into a van. Two robbers were shot dead while another seriously wounded when a 51-year-old corporate remiser open fire towards four robbers during an attempted robbery at his house in Subang Jaya.
“When he was not satisfied with the

takings, he ordered the remisier to get dressed and take them to a bank.

“They forced his wife to hand them the car keys and the remote control to the automatic gate,” DCP Yahaya said.

The remisier quietly reached for his clutch bag containing his Heckler and Koch 9mm pistol from under the bed and as he pulled out his gun one of the robbers slashed him on the head.

DCP Yahaya said the remisier let off several rounds from his gun, shooting the robber dead. He then chased the other three who were racing down the stairs to flee.

The 168cm-tall medium-built remisier, who was bleeding profusely from his head, continued his chase and loaded another magazine in his pistol before firing several more shots at the fleeing robbers, he said.

One of them was hit in the chest and collapsed in the porch while the other two fled.

“The remisier took aim at them and let loose the remaining bullets in the magazine,” DCP Yahaya.

Police found a bloody trail that stopped outside the house, leading police to believe that one of the wounded robbers sped off in a car.

The remisier sought treatment at the Subang Jaya Medical Centre, where he received eight stitches on the head.

Four hours later, police nabbed the wounded 20-year-old robber in Pandamaran, Klang.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm (II) Hadi Ho Abdullah said the man was arrested at about 11am after he sought treatment for gunshot wounds at a medical centre in Taman Bayu Perdana.

It is learnt that police were tipped off by the medical centre at about 10.30am.

A source said an anonymous couple had sent the suspect to the medical centre and informed the medical staff that he had met with an accident.

“They left immediately when the suspect was taken to the emergency room.

“While inspecting the robber’s body, the medical staff spotted three gunshot wounds on the patient’s hand, thigh and on his rear end.”

The police team later escorted the injured robber to the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital in Klang, where surgery was conducted to remove the bullets and at press time he was still in the intensive care unit.

Police have mounted a hunt for the remaining suspect.

SAC Hadi Ho urged the public who know the whereabouts of the couple or the fourth suspect to contact the nearest police station to help investigations.

Police recovered three parangs at the scene of the crime.

Gang had committed six similar robberies
