Muscat Daily - - NATION -

The Di­rec­torate Gen­eral of In­quiries and Criminal In­ves­ti­ga­tion at the Mus­cat Po­lice Head­quar­ters ar­rested three per­sons on charges of theft, as­sault and im­per­son­ation in two separate cases.

In the first case, the ac­cused took money from an Asian worker by im­per­son­at­ing as a po­lice of­fi­cer. The ac­cused asked the worker to fur­nish his ID and took money from him. The ac­cused has ad­mit­ted to the crimes upon in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

In the sec­ond case, two per­sons were ar­rested for as­sault­ing a man and snatch­ing money from him. The two ac­cused dressed as po­lice of­fi­cers forced the vic­tim out of his ve­hi­cle, as­saulted him and took all the money he had and fled the scene. The ac­cused have con­fessed to the crime.

All three ar­rested have been re­ferred to the Public Pros­e­cu­tion for fur­ther ac­tion.
