Robbery Suspects nabbed
By Jalelah Baker
Taxi driver Tan Chai Cheng, 52, had
picked three passengers up at 7.40am
yesterday and was about to drop them off
at West Coast Park when he was held at
He was then forced to hand over about $250, his
cellphone and also the key to his taxi.
Although stranded, the quick-thinking cabby
stopped a car on West Coast Highway. The driver, 60-
year-old man, then called the police before agreeing to
drive around to look for the suspects.
They were spotted minutes later and Mr Tan gave
chase. Student Michael Theofanis, 19, who had heard
Mr. Tan’s cries for help, instinctively joined in.
When the three suspects tried to escape by taking a
bus, Mr. Tan stopped it by standing in front of it. He
then did the same when they tried to board a taxi. Even
threats by one of the suspects welding a knife failed to
deter the pair.
The police arrived shortly and caught a man and a
woman. The third suspect was arrested at his house
about eight hours later. The three suspects are aged
between 18 and 22.
Yesterday evening, at the Clementi Police Division
headquarters, Mr Theofanis was given a plaque and
commended for his actions.
Mr. Tan who had remained
calm throughout the
incident, had learnt his
lesson from a previous
experience—he was robbed
of $10 000 eight years ago in
a lift by three knife-welding
men and still has a scar to
show for it.
Those convicted of armed robbery
with hurt may be jailed up to 20
years and are liable to a minimum
of 12 strokes of the cane.
