(MENAFN - Arab News) A Saudi youth in a police uniform was caught red-handed by the Riyadh Police as he robbed an Asian expatriate of his money.
According to a police report released on Friday, the youth in his twenties impersonating a security officer intimidated a newly arrived expatriate and snatched his money.

An official said that a police patrol in the vicinity of the industrial area west of the capital in Oreija district spotted an expatriate and a uniformed youth involved in a scuffle on the road. On seeing the police, the uniformed Saudi youth fled from the scene in his car.

The police car relayed a radio message to its check points to apprehend the fleeing youth. "He was arrested within hours at a nearby township in Azizia district," the official said.
The Asian expatriate filed a complaint to the police saying that the conman had forced him to part with SR1,000.

The Saudi youth confessed that his police uniform was bought from a security agency which supplies uniforms. At the time of his arrest, he had in his possession a fake walkie-talkie, a toy pistol and handcuffs, all bought from a toy shop in the city. He also had the stolen money in his pocket.
Investigations revealed that he was an unemployed Saudi youth not connected with any government organization or security company.
The suspect was handed over to the Azizia police and will be produced before the court on completion of further inquiries.
