5 suspects detained in road attack

FIVE men have been detained for killing an assistant police officer and injuring two others on Tuesday night in the Pudong New Area, police said yesterday.

The victim, Lu Ruping, was trying to investigate an alleged street robbery with two of his colleagues after they saw two men arguing with a woman while on patrol in Caolu Town. Lu found the men had stolen her bag and grabbed it to return it to the woman, officers said.

The two men wanted revenge and called three friends so they could attack Lu and his colleagues, police said. The five men, who were all drunk, then ganged up on the three assistant officers, police said.

Lu, 53, was seriously injured in the attack and was later pronounced dead in hospital. Lu's colleagues were both in stable condition, according to police.

The suspects, all from the southwest Yunnan Province, were caught the next morning.

Lu had been a good assistant officer since joining the force in 1990 and won two awards, according to police.
