The Jakarta Post
Five men with veils covering their heads broke into Muhammadiyah 02 vocational school in South Tangerang on Wednesday evening, stealing Rp 17 million (US$1,279.73) in cash and electronic goods worth Rp 60 million.
The security officer in charge that night, Farid Iqbal, 41, was unable to stop the robbery as one of the perpetrators had threatened him with a machete.
"One perpetrator held a machete to the witness's [Farid] neck," Jakarta police spokesman Sr. Comr. Argo Yuwono said on Thursday as quoted by tribunnews.com.
The robbers had also taped Farid’s eyes and mouth shut. His legs and hands were tied with wires.
After completing the robbery, the perpetrators left Farid in one of the classrooms.
Argo said the South Tangerang Police were investigating the case. (cal/dmr)
