Suspected Geylang Bahru armed robber arrested
Police arrested a 35-year-old man suspected of committing armed robbery at Geylang Bahru on Dec 1, 2013.
The man, who was armed with a penknife, confronted a 33-year-old Chinese woman who was alone in her car at an open carpark, as she was about to drive off.
He demanded that she move to the front passenger seat while he drove the car to the upper deck of a nearby multi-storey carpark.
After parking the car, he demanded for her valuables, including a smart phone, a wrist watch worth about $2,000, ATM cards, a credit card, and $200 and US$200 in cash.
The robber also forced the victim to reveal the PINs to her ATM cards. He then used adhesive tape to tie up the woman before fleeing the scene.
