PETALING JAYA: A two-minute video showing a female Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) officer allegedly being harassed by a couple has been making its rounds on social media.
UPDATE: Couple gets 14 days’ jail
The video showed the couple cornering the officer, with the woman hanging on tightly to the officer's shirt for the bulk of the video.
A short scuffle ensued as the officer tried to walk away from the couple, but was prevented by the man who had boxed her into a space between two cars while trying to take her photo.
The victim was also heard calling for help to her partner, who tried to defuse the situation.
Towards the end of the video, a man in a red helmet is seen, apparently coming to the aid of the two MBSA officers.
The footage ends after the officer managed to get past the couple who were blocking her way.
It is believed that the incident started after the officer had issued a parking ticket to the couple at Bukit Rahman Putra in Sungai Buloh, which they objected to.
