SINGAPORE - A 35-year-old man believed to have been involved in two separate cases of armed robbery has been arrested, the police said in a statement on Friday.

In the first case, a female victim claimed that a man had followed her into a lift at Jalan Tiga, which is near Old Airport Road, at 4.32pm last Friday.

As she was about to exit the lift, the man pulled her back in, and subsequently led her to the exit of a nearby staircase.

There, he robbed and molested the victim before fleeing the scene.
