On 18 April 2024 at about 2am, the SPF was alerted to a case of gang armed robbery at a residence along King Albert Park. A group of more than four men had robbed 11 victims, aged between 25 and 45, of various valuables, including cash in local and foreign currencies, cryptocurrency, and luxury brand watches, with an estimated total value of S$4.34 million. 

Through extensive ground enquiries, officers from the Criminal Investigation Department and Clementi Police Division of the SPF established the identities of the men involved. Further investigation found that the group had fled to Malaysia shortly after the SPF was alerted to the case. 

With strong co-operation and assistance from the Royal Malaysia Police (RMP), two of the men were arrested in Malaysia on 27 and 28 April 2024 under two warrants of arrest issued by the State Courts of Singapore. Both men were handed over by the RMP to the SPF on 30 April 2024. Investigations are ongoing and SPF is working with the RMP to locate the remaining suspects. 

Both men will be charged in court on 2 May 2024 with the offence of Gang Armed Robbery under Section 395 read with Section 397 of the Penal Code 1871, which carries an imprisonment term of up to 20 years and up to 24 strokes of the cane.

Deputy Director CID, Assistant Commissioner of Police (AC) Heng Chih Yang, expressed his appreciation to the RMP for their assistance in the arrest of the men. He said, “The Singapore Police Force would like to thank the Royal Malaysia Police for their strong and unequivocal support for this case. The arrest is a testament to the excellent relationship between the SPF and RMP. The SPF will spare no effort to apprehend criminals who commit crimes in Singapore, even if they leave the country. We will work with our foreign law enforcement partners to bring such fugitives to justice.”
