He added that some were social miscreants who had been terrorising people between 6p.m. and 4a.m. as well as snatching people's phones, jewellery and other valuables.
“Some of them were engaged in attacking people, stealing their handsets, money, jewellery and other valuables while others were raping young women,” he said.
He said the police succeeded in arresting the suspects by engaging in intelligence gathering to locate their hideouts.
The spokesman called on the public to assist the command with useful information that would lead to the arrest of criminals.
