Thief caught after brief standoff

KOTA KINABALU: A suspected thief threatened to jump off a building when cornered by police, leading to a 15-minute standoff that ended when he eventually surrendered.

Police had earlier caught him red-handed at an apartment which the 29-year-old cyber cafe worker had broken into.

The man managed to flee to the top floor of the four-storey apartment block.

City police chief Asst Comm Jauteh Dikun said the man then threatened to jump off the building when the police did not back off.

There was a 15-minute standoff during which the officers stood their ground and watched him.

“Eventually, the suspect just walked down and surrendered,” he said.
