VISAKHAPATNAM : The city police arrested two persons, P Suresh Kumar and a juvenile, in connection with kidnap of a girl and robbery charges Monday. Both the accused are residents of Arilova.

ACP (Madhurawada) D Ravi Babu said that accused one Suresh Kumar was a habitual offender and involved in the cases of murder, two kidnaps and a rape and also some house-breaking incidents in the city. He was arrested and jailed in some cases in March and released on bail and went to Chennai. He recently came back to the city.

On September 18, Suresh Kumar robbed an auto-rickshaw driver J Sai at knife-point and took away the vehicle at Balajinagar. While going to Arilova in the stolen auto-rickshaw, Suresh Kumar’s friend, the juvenile, boarded the vehicle. When they reached Arilova, they spotted a 20-year-old woman waiting for a bus and picked her up stating that it was a share auto going towards Hanumanthawaka. After she boarded, Kumar increased the auto speed to rob the woman with the help of his juvenile friend.

However, sensing danger, the woman alerted her relatives over phone. Suresh took the auto to Mudasarlova area and robbed the woman of her chain, ring and mobile. The woman, owner of the auto-rickshaw, along with driver Sai, lodged a complaint with the police.

Based on the complaints, inspector C Dhanunjaya Naidu and SI Kantha Rao launched a hunt for the accused. The police went to Arilova and spotted the accused. When the SI and two constables tried to reach them, the duo tried to flee. However, the inspector and constables stopped and nabbed them. The police recovered the stolen items. The juvenile has been sent to a detention centre.
