Man tries luck in rooftop escape attempt during gambling den raid

KOTA KINABALU: A man spent part of the first day of Chinese New Year on the roof of a commercial building to escape policemen who raided a gambling den in the Bundusan area near here.

However, he was later seen climbing down using a rooftop ladder and reentering the building via a window.

The man's escape attempt, which took place around 4.30pm on Friday (Feb 12), was caught on a viral video.

Another video of the same raid showed policemen carrying mahjong tables into patrol trucks.

At least 10 people are believed to be nabbed in the raid.

Police were alerted to the gambling taking place in one of the units of the building by neighbours due to the gamblers making too much noise.

Penampang OCPD Deputy Supt Mohd Haris Ibrahim confirmed the raid.
