PETALING JAYA: The elderly man who was at the receiving end of verbal abuse by an enraged woman in a road rage incident will not press charges against her said his son.
Robin Sim said his father will not press charges against the woman although he was traumatised by the incident.
Sim who initially wanted to press charges against the woman however respected his father's wishes.
“My parents were traumatised after the incident. However, once he knew that lots of people supported him regardless of their race, he felt better,” Sim told the Star Online via a Facebook message.
The video of the incident, which occurred in Kuantan was uploaded onto Youtube and instantly went viral.
In the footage taken by a nearby motorist, the screaming assailant called the man ‘very stupid’ and hurled racist remarks at him. She also demanded that he pay RM2,000 in compensation.
She also repeatedly hammered the elderly man’s vehicle with a steering lock.
The elderly man remained calm despite the woman’s outburst and offered to pay the damages, repeating that accident was unintentional.
Netizens incensed at the unnecessarily violent tantrum and rude behaviour, exposed the woman’s identity, contact details and Facebook account, including information of the bridal company where she allegedly works in.
