SHAH ALAM: Two men in their 20s were arrested a week after robbing a Special Branch inspector of his pistol and valuables.
Police also recovered the inspector’s missing Walther PPK and nabbed four others, including a 16-year-old boy in connection with the crime.
Selangor police chief Senior Deputy Comm Datuk Mohd Shukri Dahlan said the six were arrested at Taman Medan Cahaya in Petaling Jaya on Oct 18.
“At first none of the suspects admitted to keeping the gun. But one of them eventually led police to his house in Taman Medan Jaya where police found the gun and its ammunition,” SDCP Shukri told reporters on Monday.
Police also recovered a knife that was used to slash the inspector when he was robbed on Oct 12.
The inspector was on his way home from the Petaling Jaya district police headquarters at 6am when he stopped his car at a junction on Jalan Templer.
He was approached by two men on a motorcycle who pretended to ask him some questions and when he stepped out of his car, one of the suspects snatched his sling bag, which contained the pistol.
He tried to grab his bag but one of the robbers pulled out a knife and slashed his left arm before speeding off.
Among his belongings were cash, a handphone and his police ID card.
SDCP Shukri said police are on the lookout for one more suspect, 23-year-old Muhammad Shahril Ahmad who also lives in Taman Medan Cahaya.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts can contact ASP Lim Chee Khoon at 012-3151919 or the Petaling Jaya police headqarters at 03-7966 2222.
All six suspects will be remanded until Wednesday.
On the car chase in Kota Damansara on Saturday, SDCP Shukri said that the inspection that led to the car chase was based on information from three suspects, aged between 32 and 33, arrested four days earlier.
In Saturday’s incident, a patrol car had arrived at an apartment area at about 3.45pm to inspect a Proton Wira parked there, believed to have been stolen from Kelana Jaya earlier this year.
However, officers encountered four men in a Proton Waja that was reported stolen on Oct 17 in Sungai Senam, Ipoh.
The hour-long car chase resulted in several damaged vehicles.
SDCP Shukri reminded motorist to move to the side of the road upon hearing police sirens to avoid any accidents in cases of car chases.
