Boyfriend held over hotelier's son murder case

JOHOR BARU: Police have detained a 28 year-old-man to assist in investigations over the murder of the son of a budget hotel owner here.

Johor Baru (South) OCPD Asst Comm Shafie Ismail said the man was arrested at a bank in the city at 2.30pm on Wednesday.

“We believe he is the boyfriend of the 24 year-old woman who was detained earlier and released on bail,” said ACP Shafie.

Two weeks ago, Tay T. Tong was shot dead by two men who had tried to abduct him along Jalan Kuning in Taman Pelangi.

ACP Shafie urged anyone with information on the case to contact the police hotline 07- 2212999 or the nearest police station.

He also said police had arrested a gang of seven robbers believed to be responsible for snatch thefts and wayside robberies in the city.

He said the arrests were made after a snatch theft victim took down the registration number of a Proton Wira used by three men who snatched her necklace in Taman Century on Wednesday.

“With the information, we were able to detain the three suspects during a road-block in Bandar Baru Uda two hours after the incident,” he said, adding that police also seized two Rambo-type knives and a chopping knife hidden under the seats of their vehicle.

Initial investigations found that the car was stolen and the suspects, aged between 19 and 28, were using a fake number plate.

Police were led to a house along Jalan Bali in Bandar Baru Uda where police arrested four other suspects, aged between 20 and 22, in the 2.30 am raid on Thursday.

“We recovered some ganja and a stolen motorcycle at the house.”
