JOHOR BARU: Four men, including a 23-year-old policeman, were arrested for allegedly robbing a Nepali man here.
Iskandar Puteri OCPD Asst Comm Dzulkhairi Mukhtar said the suspects, aged 20 to 35, were arrested in the Gelang Patah and Mutiara Rini areas at 1am on Thursday (May 6).
"One of the suspects is a police constable and the others worked as a construction worker, bus driver and tow truck driver.
