According to Astro Awani, the suspects extorted RM20,000 from the victim in order for them to not take any actions against him. When the suspect insisted that he could only afford to give RM4,000, the suspects pressured him for at least RM5,000.

Nik Ezanee added that the police officers from Sri Hartamas Police Station later brought the victim to a petrol station for him to withdraw his money. He was subsequently released after giving the money to the officers. Acting on the report, the police arrested a 30-year-old officer at about 2pm on 24 December around the Sri Hartamas area. Seven hours later, his 38-year-old partner was arrested in the same area.
