Syringe Attackers Prosecuted

FOUR suspects who were captured amid the syringe attack scare in Urumqi have been prosecuted for endangering public security, a senior court official said yesterday.

The four, all from the Uygur ethnic group, were involved in three cases, according to Wutkur Abdurahman, procurator general of the city's procuratorate.

Muhutaerjiang Turdi, a 34-year-old man, and Aimannisha Guli, a 22-year-old woman, threatened a taxi driver with a syringe and robbed him of 710 yuan (US$104) on August 29.

The two were seeking money to buy drugs.

The woman was captured on the same day of the robbery and the man surrendered to police three days after, said the procurator general.

In another case, a man named Yilipan Yilihamu, 19, was captured on August 28, hours after a woman reported to police that she was stabbed at a roadside fruit stall.

Yilipan confessed he inserted a pin in the woman's buttock.

Akbar Imin, a 47-year-old man, injured police resisting arrest with a syringe containing a drug on August 31.
