An alleged motorcycle thief was arrested in Kembangan, West Jakarta, last Friday after trying to sell the vehicle on Facebook. Kembangan Police chief Comr. Joko Handono said MAS and JY had stolen the Honda Beat from a minor on Wednesday evening. The victim was riding his motorcycle when the two suspects allegedly pulled up alongside him on their own bike and intimidated him into pulling over. “MAS told the victim to stop and then hit him with a hat,” Handono said on Sunday, adding that the suspects allegedly forced the victim into an alley and threatened to kill him. They reportedly gestured in a way with their hands that made the victim believe they were armed with a gun.
