This is not a woman you want to mess with.

A man's attempt to make an escape after robbing a telecommunications shop in front of Masjid Labu Besar in Kulim yesterday was foiled when the victim put up a brave fight.

In the incident about 11.50am, the 29-year-old woman was in the shop, which belonged to her father when the 23-year-old suspect came in.

The suspect claimed he wanted to repair his handphone.

Police said while the victim was inspecting his phone, the suspect took out a parang and threatened the victim, asking her to hand over all the money.

The suspect then took his phone and that of the victim's before leaving the shop.

However, the victim went after the suspect and a struggle ensued.

The suspect took out his parang again and in his haste to escape dropped his handphone.

The victim later lodged a report at the Sungai Kob police station.

Police managed to nab the suspect along the road in Taman Mutiara, Sungai Kob, Kulim about 5.15pm the same day.

The suspect was using false registration plates and has two past criminal records.
