COIMBATORE: A woman and her daughter were threatened at knifepoint by two men, who entered their house during the day on Tuesday and robbed more than 16 sovereigns of gold.

The two men, said to be in their mid-twenties, entered the house of Pushpa (40), of Mathampatty Road in Thondamuthur, and stole her chain and her daughter’s earring. Police said, Pushpa had not locked the doors, which enabled the robbers to enter the house. Three special teams have been formed to trace the thieves.

In a separate incident, a house in Karamadai was broken into by unidentified persons, who stole 6.5 sovereigns of gold.

Police said that the occupant of the house, A Subburaj, a TNSTC staff, had gone out of town when the incident occurred.

24-year-old Man Held

A 24-year-old man was arrested here on Wednesday on the charges of cheating a woman and convincing her to engage in a physical relationship with him.

The man was identified as M Anandakumar from Dasanur, Mettupalayam. He fell in love with a 32-year-old woman from Kattoor, his colleague, five years ago. She had undergone an abortion in 2012. She had again conceived. When she asked Anandakumar to marry her, he refused. He also threatened her and asked her to abort again, police said.

The woman then approached the Thudiyalur AWPS with a complaint, who charged the man under Sections 417 (punishment for cheating), 313 (causing miscarriage without woman’s consent) and 506 (ii) (criminal intimidation). They arrested Anandakumar and remanded him to custody.
