Police nab man for Orchard Road snatch thefts

Police arrested a 22-year-old man on Wednesday after he allegedly committed a series of snatch thefts and robberies along Orchard Road. Officers nabbed the suspect in a stakeout at Wheelock Place after a spate of robberies and snatch thefts in Orchard Road were reported in November. In most of the cases, the victims' mobile phones and handbags were snatched from them while they were walking or waiting for buses. Some of the victims were attacked and assaulted before their belongings were taken. Follow-up investigations by the police established the identity of the suspect, who is believed to be involved in at least five cases of snatch theft and two cases of robbery with hurt.
