SHAH ALAM: Police have solved at least eight robbery cases with the arrest of eight suspects, including two women and two Indonesian men, at three separate locations last Thursday.

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Mohd Adnan Abdullah said the suspects are aged between 16 and 41.

"The first suspect was detained at a petrol station in Taman Melawati, Wangsa Maju at about 1.30am.

"Following the arrest, we busted a unit at Apartment Casmaria in Jalan Samudera, Batu Caves. Four suspects, including two women, were arrested at about 2.30am.

"Investigations led police to the remaining suspects who were nabbed at the lobby of the apartment half an hour after the second arrests were made," he said at a press conference at the Selangor police contingent headquarters Wednesday morning.

SAC Mohd Adnan added that the suspects have been active since 2010.

"They targeted women who stopped at traffic lights. They would smash the car window and snatch the handbags," he said.

Among the items seized in the case were 24 handphones, five laptops, six handbags, one sword and two machetes.

Checks by the police also revealed that three of the suspects had past convictions involving drugs and rape.
