The gang carried out the robberies in one hour from 9 pm to 10 pm on Tuesday night. They first attacked Saravanan near MRS school when he was returning home after visiting a friend. “One of them caught hold of him, while the other attacked him with a knife and snatched his wallet and mobile phone,” the police said.
At the same spot, they also attacked Elumalai, a carpenter, who was talking with a few friends around 9.30 pm. Elumalai was slashed on his left hand and the duo fled the spot. A few minutes later, they intercepted R Palani (28)near Lakhshmi wedding hall at Nerkundram and started attacking him. As he fell on the road, the duo escaped with his two-wheeler.
The police identified their white colour bike used in all three incidents and launched a hunt for them and nabbed the suspects. They were remanded in judicial custody on Thursday.
