Two arrested, cops on trail of 2 more suspects in robbery of woman


PETALING JAYA: Police are on the hunt for two robbery suspects still at large, following the robbery of a woman in Sungai Way on Friday (April 24).

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said the incident occurred at around 7pm near the Setia Jaya Rapid Transit Bus (BRT) station.

"We received a report that the 25-year-old woman was robbed and began tracing the whereabouts of the suspects.

"We raided a house in Desa Mentari at around 12.30am on Saturday (April 25) and arrested a 26-year-old suspect and seized a sling bag, a Samsung mobile phone, identification documents and a Proton Preve car believed to be used in the robbery," he said in a statement.

He said about two and a half hours later, the suspect led police to another suspect in the area.

"The 17-year-old suspect attempted to flee and acted aggressively towards police, but was subdued and taken into custody.

"We also seized a set of Proton car keys and a Nokia mobile phone when we arrested the suspect," he said, adding that during interrogation, the suspect confessed to involvement in the robbery with two other suspects.

ACP Nik Ezanee said police were now tracing their whereabouts.

"The second suspect also led police to an area near Desa Ria where they dumped the belongings of the victim they robbed.

"We recovered a handbag, purse, two ATM cards and a TeaLive card there," he said, adding that police were investigating if the suspects were involved in other robberies in Petaling Jaya.

He urged those with information on the case to contact the police hotline at 03-2052 9999 or visit the nearest police station.
