KL cops nab suspect who allegedly robbed car driver

KUALA LUMPUR: It took less than 24 hours for the police to arrest a suspect who allegedly robbed a car driver.

The incident took place in broad daylight on Wednesday (March 28) at 12.40pm when the suspect allegedly broke the car's side mirror on purpose and told the victim to lower his car window at Jalan Tasek Tambahan 1, leading to the theft.

"The suspect then spat at the victim before pulling his collar and stealing his gold necklace. He then escaped and losses were estimated to be around RM3,000.

"At around 9.45pm, the police arrested a 30-year-old security guard at his house in Tasek Permai, Ampang.

Investigations showed that the suspect had sold the gold necklace to a pawn shop within the Ampang area and used the money to buy a motorcycle p," said Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Farouk Eshak in a statement on Wednesday (March 29).

Police also recovered a receipt from the pawn shop and the motorcycle used during the robbery.

The suspect had a prior criminal record and was remanded until April 4.
