Through ground enquiries and with the aid of images from Police cameras, officers from Tanglin Police Division and Bedok Police Division established the identity of the woman and arrested her on 3 June 2024. Preliminary investigations revealed that she is believed to be involved in other similar cases of loanshark harassment island-wide.
