Angry lot: A videograb of the suspect (in black on the ground) being beaten by the public.
PETALING JAYA: A man who was set upon by a group of people for attempting to steal a car has been arrested.
“He tried to break into a car with the help of an accomplice at a parking lot of a supermarket,” South Klang OCPD Asst Comm Kamarul Zaman Mamat said.
“However, passers-by who saw them in the act stopped them,” he said.
ACP Kamarul Zaman said the man was soon arrested near the supermarket at Bukit Tinggi, Klang, on Sunday.
The man, he said, had retaliated against the passers-by by attacking them with a stick.
“One of them was struck in the head,” ACP Kamarul Zaman said.
He said the passers-by managed to subdue the man and tied him up.
“Unfortunately, his accomplice fled before anyone could catch him,” said ACP Kamarul Zaman.
A video recording of the incident, which went viral on Facebook, showed the man being beaten up by people.
“Police arrived at the scene soon after to break up the fight.
“The suspect was brought to the Klang police station to assist in investigations,” ACP Kamarul Zaman added.
