Surgery fails to help man evade police

A SUSPECT wanted for stabbing a man in Shanghai two years ago has been caught even though he had cosmetic surgery to alter his appearance, police said yesterday.

Peng Yanzhao, the suspect, was captured on August 31 when police raided a brothel in Changzhou City, Jiangsu Province, police said.

Peng told the police his name was Peng Yanquan and aged 32. However, police found the picture of Peng in their database was slightly different.

They soon found Peng Yanquan's younger brother was wanted for injuring a man in Shanghai's Baoshan District in 2009.

The suspect soon confessed that after fleeing to his hometown he used his older brother's ID card. He also went to a plastic surgery clinic to add a scar to the right side of his forehead and remove a mole from the left forehead, according to police.

Police said the suspect will remain in custody while they continue with their investigation.
