According to Free Malaysia Today, the incident happened on Monday (February 15th) at Van Praagh Road, Jelutong, Penang. 

The two men had appeared in front of her door with a package asking, her to sign the delivery. As she opened the door, one of the men rushed in, pulled out a knife, and told her not to scream. 

The robbers demanded RM50,000 from the woman and when she said she did not have that kind of money, one of the men grabbed a necklace worth RM1,200, said police.

Her three-year-old daughter was with her throughout the ordeal.

After about 10 minutes, the woman then realised that her three-month-old baby was missing. Her husband, who was at work at the time, rushed back and they searched the entire flat area for about 30 minutes before finding him in one of their rooms after hearing muffled cries from the baby.

Penang Northeast district police chief, Soffian Santong said that police are on the lookout for the two men and if you have any information, please contact Inspector Nurfaiz Fathi Marhom at +604-2825922 ext 228.
