Bank guard foils robbery attempt at UOB in City Plaza


Vigilant Bank Guard Foils Robbery Attempt

A vigilant bank security officer helped prevent a robbery attempt at a bank with the assistance of bank staff yesterday (10 Nov 2008) afternoon.
On 10 Nov 08 at about 3.30pm, Security Officer Lance Corporal (LCP) Rosli Bin Mohd Sa’ad was on duty at a bank at a shopping centre along Geylang Rd when he spotted a Malay man behaving suspiciously in the banking hall.
Sensing that something was amiss, LCP Rosli decided to conduct a check on the subject. When confronted, the subject became agitated and a scuffle ensued that attracted the attention of some of the bank staff, who came forward to assist in subduing the Malay man.
The suspect, a Malay man in his mid-40s, will be charged in Court 26 on 12 Nov 08 at 9am for Attempted Robbery under Section 393 of the Penal Code, Chapter 224, which carries a maximum punishment of seven years imprisonment. If convicted, he will also be liable to caning.
Presenting a plaque of appreciation to LCP Rosli at Bedok Police Division this afternoon, Commander of Bedok Police Division, Assistant Commissioner (AC) of Police, Lim Kok Thai commended LCP Rosli for his alertness in noticing the suspicious behaviour of the suspect as well as his bravery and swiftness in subduing the suspect.
AC Lim said, "LCP Rosli has done his security agency proud. This case once again exemplifies the importance of a close partnership between the security agencies, the public and Police, which is crucial in ensuring a safe and secure Singapore ."
