SEREMBAN: Another cop here was injured after he was hit with a blunt object, barely 48 hours after a similar case was reported in Senawang.
A 45-year-old Chief Inspector was bludgeoned on Saturday when he tried to persuade a man, believed to be mentally disturbed, to let go of a parang and stick he was holding.
The officer was leading a five-man team to probe grouses by residents of Taman Jujur here that an armed man was going around destroying their property.
The team arrived at the scene at 9pm and was told by the residents that the man had gone into his house.
The officer entered the house and managed to calm the man down.
However, the man, 31, be- came furious when the chief inspector stepped closer to him. He used a blunt object to hit the police officer.
The other policemen rushed the victim to the Seremban Hospital after detaining the man.
OCPD Asst Comm Hasanud- din Hasan said police are probing whether the man was actually getting any psychiatric treatment.
