However, as soon as the shopkeeper turned to the other side, one of the two ladies stood near the entrance while the other attacked the shopkeeper from with a chemical spray. As he fell to the ground, they were left with enough time to loot the shop.
Following the attack, the shopkeeper addressed the media and said, “When I turned towards the safety locker, one of the women attacked me from the back with a wet chemical cloth, which made me unconscious. I was shocked and fell on the ground as I was unable to understand the situation.”
He added that he did not realize he was conned until he regained his consciousness in the hospital. He divulged further and said the thieves took away a small box, which contained less expensive items. He is, however, yet to ascertain the amount of loss he has incurred following the incident.
