The arrested — including a teenager aged 18, a 30-year-old man from the UAE and a 21-year-old from Comoros Island — would enter a shop, supermarket or restaurant, threaten its workers with a knife and take the available money from the safe, a police spokesman said on Sunday.

The police had received several complaints from residents. They managed to identify the teenager who disclosed his other two accomplices. The three have confessed and have been referred to public prosecution. The police have warned that they are intensifying their crackdown on gangs using knives to steal and have asked the public to help by passing on any useful information.
