SEREMBAN: Police have arrested a 40-year-old man for impersonating a policeman to extort money from foreign workers. 

The arrest was made on Friday following a report lodged by video outlet operator that a Nepalese worker was forced to hand over about RM3,800 to the man. 

It is learnt that the suspect, with two accomplices, had been preying on foreign workers by using false authority cards and handcuffs to extort and rob workers here and at the Senawang Industrial estate for two months. 

They would demand to see the workers’ working permits and threaten to arrest them if they fail to produce the documents on the spot. 

The victims were then brought to a secluded area to settle the matter. There, they would be fleeced off their valuables.
