SIBU: A teenager was arrested while two others managed to escape after police found them involved in an illegal motorcycle race at Permai Jaya on Saturday (July 3).

District police chief ACP Stanley Jonathan Ringgit said a police patrol unit spotted the 17-year-old suspect and two other motorcyclists racing around a residential area in Permai Jaya at about 6.45pm.
