This was revealed in a statement from the Police command spokesperson, which said that on Tuesday January 22nd at about 15.30hrs, policemen who were on a motorbike on street patrol duty, saw two men.
The policemen then approached the men for routine check, but rather than subject themselves to security scrutiny, they took to their heels.
The police riders chased after the fleeing men and arrested one of them.
During a brief interrogation, the suspect narrated that their mission in the area was to rob a business man who they learnt was in town for a transaction with a notable automobile company in the area.
One locally made pistol, three live cartridges and a dagger were recovered from the suspect.
The police also made it known that efforts are on to arrest his fleeing accomplice while the apprehended suspect would be charged to court soon.
