Man Who Killed Two Police Officers Arrested 台南2警遭襲不治 林嫌清晨在新竹落網

Two police officers were killed while pursuing a suspect surnamed Lin who had stolen a vehicle in Tainan's Annan District on Aug. 22. Lin killed the police officers with a knife and then took one officer's gun, which he used to hold up a convenience store. A nationwide manhunt was launched and Lin was arrested at 4 a.m. on Aug. 23 in Hsinchu.


The man surnamed Lin suspected of killing two police officers in Tainan is arrested upon his arrival in Hsinchu, ending a 17-hour manhunt.

Police Officer: “The other hand, the other hand.”

Lin was apprehended and the police removed a gun and bullets he had taken from one of the police officers he had killed. A police task force got information that he was on board a bus from Kaohsiung to Hsinchu, and National Police Agency Director-General Huang Ming-chao personally led the operation. Lin was taken into custody at around 4 a.m. He will be taken back to Tainan to be sentenced.

Fang Yang-ning, Commissioner, Tainan City Police Department: “The police officers ordered him to put down his knife, but he didn't obey. Our colleagues then sprayed pepper spray, which we use for defensive purposes, at him. The suspect's eyes were irritated by the pepper spray, and he began acting crazily and attacked our colleagues.”

The two murders weren't the only crimes that Lin committed. He also used the gun he stole from one of the officers to hold up a convenience store. After killing the police officers, he rode the scooter he stole to a high school, where he abandoned it. He then took a taxi followed by a bus to the train station, where he boarded a train for Xinying. He stole another scooter and robbed a convenience store before taking a private car to Kaohsiung where he boarded a bus for Hsinchu. He changed his mode of transport six times during this time.

Bus Operator: “The suspect got off and the police waited until he wasn't near the driver as it appeared that he was armed to arrest him. ”

Huang Ming-chao, Director-General, National Police Agency: “There were 12 passengers on board the bus, including the suspect. We decided to wait until he had disembarked and the bus door was closed again to apprehend him.”

The police are still investigating details of the murders.

 

 

大批員警圍上前去,殺警案的林姓嫌犯剛到新竹就被逮,結束17小時的逃亡。

警方:「另外一隻手、另外一隻手!」

林嫌被壓制在地,警方從他身上起出其中一位被害員警凃明誠的佩槍及子彈。專案小組掌握到他將從高雄搭客運北上的消息,23日清晨由警政署長黃明昭親自帶隊圍捕,終於在4點多抓到他,帶回台南偵辦。

台南市警察局長方仰寧表示:「(員警)喝令他放下刀子,他不從,我們的同仁就用我們的防護型噴霧劑,也就是辣椒水噴向他。嫌犯的眼睛因為辣椒水的刺激,一時瘋狂的就撲向我們同仁。」

林嫌對殺警避重就輕,但他不只殺警,晚上還持警槍、搶超商。他22日作案後先將贓車騎到土城高中棄置,又轉搭計程車、公車等到火車站,搭火車去新營後,還偷機車、搶超商,接著搭白牌車到高雄,再換客運到新竹,總共換了6種交通工具,行事狡猾。

客運業者說:「嫌犯下來,等他遠離(客運)司機,因為他好像有搶槍,警方就直接開門把他押下去。」

黃明昭表示:「車上總共有12名乘客,包括嫌犯本人,當時的研議考量是等他下車,車門關上以後再來逮捕。」

林嫌殺害2名警察,震驚警界,讓警政署長黃明昭下令全國圍捕。儘管嫌犯已落網,由於案發地點沒什麼人煙,詳細案發經過有待警方進一步釐清。
