Police have arrested two individuals who allegedly snatched jewelry from former national team female footballer Mariyam Mohamed (Mayan) while she was out jogging yesterday morning.

They said that two suspects were arrested today and that they include a 25-year-old and a 27-year-old.

In a social media post, Mayan said that as per usual she set out for her morning jog right after Fajr prayers and she had taken a route on Hulhumale Phase 1. She recounted that the incident happened when she was jogging on a street near the Raincrest Residence.

She said that two people wearing helmets sat on a motorcycle when she passed them. Mayan said she was trying to cross the road when she felt one of the individuals grab her neck from behind and snatch her gold necklace from her neck.

The former players said that she started to scream for help and a foreigner heeded her call and chased after the snatchers. She also said that in the heat of the movement she forgot to check the license number of the motorcycle they fled on.

Police had said yesterday that they were further investigating the incident.
