(MENAFN - Jordan Times) Police on Tuesday said they were searching for three men who reportedly posed as Anti-Narcotics Department (AND) agents and robbed four Saudi Arabian nationals of their vehicle, mobile phones and cash in Jubeiha on Friday.
The four Saudis said they were driving in their vehicle in the Jubeiha neighbourhood of west Amman on Friday at 3:00am when they were allegedly approached by three men riding in a red Mercedes with red licence plates, Public Security Department (PSD) Spokesperson Lt. Col. Mohammad Khatib said.
"They told police that three men emerged from the vehicle, informed them that they were AND agents and instructed them not to move," the police official told The Jordan Times.
He added that the men then took the defendants to the Tabarbour neighbourhood, stripped them of their vehicle, mobile phones and JD200 in cash.
"We wrote down the details given to us by the victims and are currently searching for a red Mercedes," Khatib noted.
Also Tuesday, police said they were questioning the head of the Duleil post office, who claimed he was attacked and robbed of JD8,000 by two people.
The post office director said he had withdrawn JD20,000 from a bank near the post office and placed it in a plastic bag, and was attacked by two men as he left the bank, the PSD official said, quoting the alleged victim's initial testimony.
"He said that he struggled with them and after they ran away he discovered that JD8,000 was missing," Khatib added.
He noted that police are currently taking the post office director's statements and further details that would hopefully help them solve the crime.
