KOTA KINABALU: Three intruders, trying to make their way into Sabah's eastern Sandakan district, were arrested after authorities rammed into their boat following a brief chase.
The Police General Operations Force (GOF) tiger platoon team pursued the men for two to three kilometres before ramming their boat,
Sources told The Star that the police patrol boat personnel came across the intruders in a 200HP speed boat and fired a warning shot before ordering them to surrender at around 7.15pm Saturday.
The incident ended at about 8.15pm following a brief struggle with the suspects.
One of the three suspects sustained injuries in the incident.
The injured suspect was sent to the Duchess of Kent Hospital, while two other suspects are in the custody of Sandakan police for questioning.
However, police did not find any firearms inside the boat of the suspects, sources added.
Police are investigating if the group were planning to commit a kidnapping or were involved in smuggling.
Senior police officers in Sandakan and Eastern Sabah Security Command (Esscom) could not be reached for further details.
