Man arrested for robbing women of gold necklaces - Straits Times Singapore #TEAMFOLLOWBACK

Police have arrested a 53 year-old man for two separate cases of robbery in Bedok. The two victims were each robbed of their gold necklaces valued at about $1,000 each. The first victim, a 73-year-old woman, was set upon in a life at Blk 34 Bedok South on July 13 while she was on her way back from the market. The suspect entered the lift together with the victim and when the lift door was about to close, he snatched her necklace and fled on a red-coloured bicycle. He struck again last week August 11. This time, he robbed a 63-year-old woman of her gold necklace inside the lift at Blk 219B Bedok North. Members of public who had heard the victim's cries for help managed to detain the suspect at near Bedok Point but he struggled free only to be tracked down by officers from Bedok Police Division and arrested on Thursday after a short chase.
