PETALING JAYA: Police have arrested the suspect over the savage attack on a woman at the Taman Mutiara MRT station in Cheras on Feb 14.
City police chief Comm Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said the suspect was arrested at a house at Taman Cheras at around 8.10pm on Monday.
"The 26-year-old suspect will be remanded to help with further investigations," he said adding that the case was being investigated under Section 394 of the Penal Code for causing hurt while committing robbery.
During the incident on Valentine's Day, a 48-year-old woman suffered multiple injuries, including bruises on her forehead, after she was savagely attacked by the robber in a lift at about 6.45am.
A CCTV recording that went viral shows the woman entering the lift, followed by the man, who then punched and kicked her repeatedly.
The assailant escaped with her MyKad, ATM cards and RM400 in cash.
