The fourth suspect involved in the November 2014 Aljunied Crescent robbery has been arrested in Malaysia, the Singapore Police Force (SPF) said in a news release on Thursday (Apr 14).
On Nov 5, 2014, a money changer lost more than S$600,000 when five men wearing ski masks robbed him in an open-air carpark at Blk 110 Aljunied Crescent in the early hours of the morning. Three men were arrested in 2014.
According to SPF, the 31-year-old Malaysian suspect was arrested with the assistance of the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP), pursuant to a warrant of arrest issued by the State Courts.
“I would like to thank the RMP for their strong support for this case," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Investigations & Intelligence) concurrent Director of the Criminal Investigation Department, Tan Chye Hee.
"This serious crime occurred in November 2014 and the RMP pressed on with their efforts to locate the suspect. With the invaluable assistance from our foreign law enforcement partners, the police will continue with our relentless efforts to ensure that criminals who remain on the run will be brought back to justice.”
The suspect, who has been handed over to SPF, will be charged in court on Friday morning under the offence of Armed Robbery with Hurt under Section 394 read with Section 397 of the Penal Code, Chapter 224.
