Bangsar liquid splasher still unidentified

KUALA LUMPUR: Police have ruled out that the motorcyclist who has been terrorising teachers and students in Bangsar by splashing hazardous liquid at them is a disgruntled former employee.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid said investigation carried out so far seem to rule out that possibility.

“We have interviewed and tracked down all those who were formerly employed at the school and they have been cleared of any suspicion.

“However, we will continue to investigate this case thoroughly,” he said yesterday.

ACP Wan Abdul Bari added that police were also trying to determine what the substance was.

“We have sent samples of the victim’s clothing together with other evidence to a specialist to analyse and identify the substance,” he said.

The attacker, believed to be in his 30’s, managed to elude capture despite carrying out three daring daylight attacks at SMK Bukit Bandaraya and SK Bukit Bandaraya since Feb 9.

Twelve people, including eight pupils, a teacher, a parent and her two children, have fallen victim.

None were seriously hurt but had complained of a burning sensation on the skin when hit by the liquid.

He is believed to be working alone and has been seen wearing a black jacket and full-faced helmet, and riding a blue Yamaha motorcycle with a carrier-basket in front.

None of the victims or witnesses could provide the police with the registration number of the motorcycle.

Those with information are urged to call the Brickfields police headquarters at 03-22742222.
