As robberies all over the country at night have increased these days, Wattala Police OIC has taken steps to increase mobile patrols at night in his police division.

Accordingly, on July 1 night, a group of personnel from the Wattala Police were travelling from Wattala to Kerawalapitiya in a Police three-wheeler, when a jeep that came at a high speed nearly collided with the three-wheeler. The driver of the vehicle then had started abusing the Police officers and later had left.

Police say that the Police officers had then given chase to the jeep which went to the Kerawalapitiya Alwis area.

When the Police went to Alwis Place and inquired, the jeep was parked in a garden and the gate was closed. The Police say that while the Police officers were waiting near the gate, the man who came in the jeep attacked the Police officers with a club, injuring a Police Constable who was admitted to the Ragama Hospital.

After notifying the Wattala Police about the attack, an additional team of officers was brought and the officers present at the place took steps to arrest the suspect. A senior Police officer stated that it appeared that the suspect was drunk at the time.
