Smash and grab: Even a minister's wife is not immune from this

The wife of a Cabinet minister became a victim of a smash and grab robbery near Jalan Ampang where the culprits smashed the car passenger window of the Datin Seri's BMW and snatched her handbag.

She had stopped her car at a traffic light when two men on a motorcycle approached the vehicle from the left.

They smashed the car window and grabbed the handbag, which was placed on the passenger seat, during the 10am incident yesterday and sped off.

It is believed that the handbag contained, among others, cash of about RM50 and several credit cards.

The Datin Seri did not suffer any injuries. She lodged a police report later.
