On Tuesday, Suratman was robbed of Rp1.1 million (approx. RM353) when he was peddling his wares. According to Coconuts, on that fateful morning, he had chosen a spot at one of the city’s main streets for his business that day. That was when the heartless robbers drew up next to the car and told Suratman he wanted to buy Rp15,000 (approx. RM4.80) of bananas.

He requested Suratman to enter the car to pass him the bananas because he didn’t want to be seen buying the bananas as he was fasting. However, when the old man entered the car, the robbers forced him to empty his pockets of the cash he was carrying, which amounted to Rp1.1 million (approx. RM353).
