A SERIAL thief who stole from his victims by slitting their pockets with a razor blade, was caught on Monday.
The 26-year-old man struck mostly in the Ang Mo Kio area, targeting those who were napping in void decks or pavilions within the estate. Using a razor blade, he slit open their pockets and made off with the victims' valuables.
Several of such cases had been reported in February and April.
However, the man was arrested at Harbourfront Centre on Monday, and is currently suspected of being responsible for nine more similar cases in Ang Mo Kio.
He will be charged in court on Wednesday.
