A 31-year-old man has been arrested for attempting to bribe two police officers.
On Friday (Jul 10), Staff Sergeant Noor Ramdan and Sergeant Mohammad Nazri from Ang Mo Kio Division responded to a case of a drunken passenger who refused to alight from a taxi at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1.
The man made indecent hand gestures and refused to heed the officers’ advice despite repeated warnings. He was eventually placed under arrest for disorderly behaviour and for insulting public servants.
Police said in a statement that on the way back to the police station, the man offered to introduce the officers to paid sexual services, and gratification of S$50 as inducements to let him go.
The officers rejected the bribes and the man was subsequently arrested for attempting to bribe police officers.
The man will be charged in court on Monday (Jul 13).
