The sisters, aged 28 and 35, who had returned home from an outing, were confronted by a lone robber inside the lift.
Even the lifts in condominiums secured by guards may not be safe, two sisters have found. Photographs taken from the condominium's security CCTV, made available to theSun by a member of the public, show the robber loitering in the corridor next to the elevator and following the sisters into a lift.
The women, who are now down on the floor of the lift, holding on to their belongings as the robber pulls the handbag away violently.
According to Petaling Jaya police chief ACP Arjunaidi Mohamad, one of the sisters was slashed in her hand but her injury was not serious. He said police had increased their patrols in the area and are trying to trace the robber from the images obtained from the CCTV recording.
