The po­lice ar­rested two men sus­pected of mug­ging peo­ple on a bus in Hlaing Thar­yar town­ship on Au­gust 23.

On Au­gust 21 at around 6pm, two uniden­ti­fied men wield­ing a bam­boo stick got on bus YBS No.20 in Hlaing Thar­yar.

They asked for K1000 from the bus driver, who was ap­par­ently un­able to give them the money. The two men al­legedly stole K400 from two pas­sen­gers. Bus com­pany of­fi­cial U Min Lwin filed a com­plaint at the lo­cal po­lice sta­tion.

Us­ing a CCTV record, the po­lice ap­pre­hended the sus­pected mug­gers, iden­ti­fied as Yan Shin and Thiha Soe from Htantabin town­ship.

The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is still un­der­way to con­clude whether the sus­pects com­mit­ted other rob­beries.
