The Macao police have nabbed six suspects over casino loan-sharking charges, Macao Post Daily reported Wednesday.

The Macao Post Daily quoted police sources as saying that a crime-prevention squad Tuesday detained the suspects at a downtown coffee shop where they were found threatening a victim over gambling debts.

The sextet has earlier offered the victim, a Hong Kong resident,loans with a 10 percent "commission," the sources said.

The suspects, four Hong Kongers and two Macao residents, have run the loan-sharking racket in several local casinos for four months, the sources were cited.

Further investigations are proceeding on the matter.
