Cops nab three men after they abandon businessman near roadblock

IPOH: Three kidnappers stopped their car and ran out, leaving their victim behind in the vehicle when they saw a police roadblock ahead of them in Tanjung Malim, more than 150km from here.

They tried to flee into a nearby jungle but was nabbed by the policemen who were manning the roadblock.

Two of the three kidnappers were wearing police volunteer reserve uniforms and police reflective vests.

Relating events leading to the arrests, Perak CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Mohd Dzuraidi Ibrahim told reporters the suspects had waved to the 53-year-old victim, a businessman, to stop at km120 of the Tanjung Malim-Behrang road at about 11.30am on Wednesday.

The men drove a silver coloured Proton Waja that had a logo of the Royal Malaysian Police on the side of one of its doors.

“The victim, thinking they were policemen, stopped his car. However, he saw one of the men peeling off the police logo, like removing a sticker, and became suspicious of their motive. He refused to leave his car.

“The suspects then dragged the businessman out, handcuffed him and forced him into their car. They then drove about 10km towards Slim River.

“Unfortunately for them, there was a roadblock by the police ahead,” said SAC Mohd Dzuraidi.

Investigations found the car used by the suspects had been reported stolen in Seremban last month.

SAC Dzuraidi said the two alleged PVR policemen were from Shah Alam while their accomplice was a taxi driver.
