One of the robbers, all of whom wore crash helmets, pointed what looked like a pistol at the guard while another carried a hammer, Kajang District Police deputy chief Supt Mohd Sabri Abdullah said today.
There were three employees and six customers, including a child, in the shop when the robbers struck, he said in a statement.
