SINGAPORE - A 42-year-old woman has been arrested for attempting to bribe a police officer with $10,000 cash during an anti-vice check at Middle Road.

The woman had tried to offer Assistant Superintendent (ASP) Chan Wai Hoong a bribe when he and his team of officers conducted a check on her on the afternoon of April 14, said the police in a statement on Tuesday (April 19).

She had repeatedly offered ASP Chan the cash during the checks "as an inducement to let her go", said the police.

But her advances were rejected and she was arrested on the spot.

The case has since been referred to the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau. Meanwhile, the woman is also being investigated by the police for alleged vice activities.
