Yahaya added,

“A squad from the Pekan Bharu police station rushed to the scene,  arrested a 66-year-old man and seized several items, including a backpack, a toy pistol and 2 blades.”

The Ipoh District Police chief also confirmed that the man was the same perpetrator for the robbery of a jewellery shop on 25 March 2023 and a convenience store on 5 April 2023 in nearby areas.

In both robberies, the senior citizen used the same modus operandi of using a toy pistol which looked like a real gun.
