KUALA LUMPUR (The Star/Asia News Network) - A female customer stood with arms folded seemingly oblivious to an armed robbery taking place right before her eyes.

To add to the rather bizarre behaviour, the woman tore off her headscarf and calmly walked out of the phone shop after the 5.30pm robbery at Taman Pusat Kepong on Tuesday.

Sentul OCPD ACP R. Munusamy said the police do not suspect the woman but has urged her to give her statement to the police. "She is a regular customer at the shop. Everyone reacts differently to situations like this," he said when asked about the woman's behaviour.

The parang-wielding robber had rushed into the shop while the shopkeeper and her young daughter were attending to the woman.
