Taman Medan folk catch bogus cop

PETALING JAYA: A man impersonating a police officer and claiming to have information on the whereabouts of a missing five-year-old Sharlinie Mohd Nashar was caught by Taman Medan residents when he turned up at the girl’s home in PJS2 last night.

The man and his accomplice, both in their 20s, had gone to the house at about 9.40pm and demanded Sharlinie’s parents give them a better photograph of her.

Petaling Jaya police chief Asst Comm Arjunaidi Mohamed said the pair also told the family that they knew the whereabouts of Sharlinie and claimed to have seen her recently.

However, the duo fled the house when neighbours started to arrive and questioned them.

The residents suspected that the two were bogus policemen, and they quickly mounted a search for them.

“They spotted the duo about a kilometre away and demanded to see their authority cards. When they failed to do so, a scuffle broke out between one of the men and the residents. In the commotion, one of them fled on a motorcycle,” said ACP Arjunaidi.

The residents apprehended the other man, who suffered some bruises, and called the police.

ACP Arjunaidi said police are checking the man’s identity and looking for his accomplice.
