Foot patrol foils snatch thief

12th August, 2017

By JONATHAN NICHOLAS

KOTA KINABALU: Plans for grabbing a slice of pizza during lunch break were put on hold when a woman fell victim to a purse snatcher at Gaya Street on Wednesday.

According to City police Chief ACP M Chandra, the 33-year-old woman and her colleague were walking to Pizza Hut for lunch at around 1.20pm when a man came running from the opposite direction and snatched the purse which she was clutching in her right hand.

She then tried to chase the snatch thief but to no avail.

Policemen who were on foot patrol in the vicinity heard the victim’s cries for help, and gave chase before arresting him near Upperstar Café at Segama Complex. A green coloured Coach purse containing documents and cash were seized from him.

“The suspect is a 38-year-old from Sibu, Sarawak and is now remanded for seven days until next Wednesday for further questioning,” Chandra said.

The case is classified under Section 392 of the Penal Code which carries a mandatory jail sentence with 14 years maximum, a fine and whippings may be imposed, if convicted.

In a statement, Chandra advised the public to be aware of their surroundings when carrying valuables and to keep an eye out for suspicious individuals. He also said to avoid walking alone in isolated areas so as to avoid unwanted events.
