As per the SPF, police officers on patrol noticed a vehicle that had been reported stolen through the Automated Number Plate Recognition System (ANPR) of the Next Generation Fast Response Car. Upon receiving the alert, the officers stopped in front of the stolen vehicle. However, the suspect attempted to evade arrest by starting the car engine and resisting while still in the vehicle. The man was eventually arrested after a struggle.

A bystander captured the arrest on camera and shared a four-minute video on the Instagram page Sgfollowsall.backup on June 11. The video shows the man sitting in a dark grey car in a car park while two police officers attempt to pull him out. A struggle ensues, causing the car horn to sound at one point. The officers can be heard urging the man to exit the vehicle, with one officer saying, “Come out now, I tell you, you are not going to make it, okay?”

After some time, two more officers arrive at the scene, and together they manage to pull the man out and seat him on the curb. However, the struggle continues as the man resists arrest. Eventually, four officers successfully pin the man down.

The SPF reported that the man was charged in court on June 10 with theft of a motor vehicle, which carries a maximum sentence of seven years’ imprisonment and a fine. The man is also under investigation for several other offenses, with police investigations ongoing.

It also underscores the importance of bystanders’ cooperation in providing evidence to assist in investigations. However, it is essential to note that resisting arrest can lead to more severe consequences and that individuals should always comply with law enforcement officers’ instructions.
