A pair of alert Bishan residents helped police nab a man believed to be involved in loan shark harassment.

On Saturday afternoon, police received a phone call from a man.

He and his neighbour had detained the 27-year-old Malaysian suspect for writing on a wall outside their homes at Block 166 Bishan Street 16.
