Two men have been arrested for impersonating as police officers and robbing people of their cash after assaulting them.

Of late, the operation room of the Sharjah Police had been receiving a number of theft reports. A police team from the criminal investigations department of the Sharjah Police and Al Ghareb police launched a manhunt.

After obtaining information from different sources, the team pounced on the two men.

The suspects were confronted with evidence that showed that they carried out thefts by posing as police officers and even assaulted the victims.

After interrogation, the duo confessed to their crime. They were referred to the Sharjah Public Prosecution for further investigation.

Lt. Colonel Mohammed Hassan Al-Shamsi, head of the criminal investigations department, urged the public to respond to anything only after checking the identity of "police officers". He also called on the people to ask them to show the legal permission from the public prosecution which authorizes them to search or arrest a person.
