The incident, which occurred on Tuesday (30 April) in the Kota Damansara area, has left the community shocked and the police on high alert.

According to Petaling Jaya District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner Shahrulnizam Jaafar, the female victim woke up at 7 a.m. to find her house door open and two mobile phones missing.

Upon reviewing her CCTV footage, she confirmed that a thief had sneaked into her home at night and made off with the phones and RM500 in cash.
