Two suspected robbers who resisted arrest were shot by the local police at a slaughterhouse in Tangerang, Banten, on Friday.

Tangerang Police chief Sr. Comr. Harry Kurniawan stated on Friday that the two were shot in the chest after they attacked officers with a cutting tool, wounding one policeman in the head.

The police also arrested five others suspected to have been involved in the Rp 800 million (US$ 55,248) robbery in Batu Ceper district on Thursday.

Harry said it took the police around 24 hours to round up all seven individuals after the robbery. Slaughterhouses are profitable in the lead up to Idul Adha, the Day of Sacrifice, on Aug. 22.

“The five suspects will be charged under Article 365 of the Criminal Code for theft and violence. They face up to 12 years' imprisonment,” he said as quoted by kompas.com. (nor)
