Alert passers-by foiled a theft when a man allegedly tried to steal a fishmonger’s takings.
The 50-year-old stall worker, who gave his name as Ye, had been chopping fish yesterday when the thief was said to have snatched about S$200 (RM513) from a container on the counter at Chong Pang Market.
“He stuffed it into a plastic bag, turned around and ran,” Ye told Chinese evening paper Shin Min Daily News.
“That’s when I shouted for help.”
His plea caught the attention of other tenants and passers-by, who caught the 55-year-old man and restrained him with cable ties.
Police have arrested the man. — The Straits Times/ Asia News Network
