KUALA LUMPUR: A video clip of another road rage case has gone viral, this time occurring near the Cheras roundabout.
A 23-second video shows the alleged aggressor standing outside holding a vehicle's side mirror and threatening to hit the victim's car with it.
The victim then attempts to drive off but not before the man throws the side mirror at the car.
Cheras OCPD Asst Comm Mohamed Mokhsein Mohamed Zon said the case occurred at around 2.30pm last Saturday (Aug 10).
"A 20-year-old woman lodged a report that she was driving her car toward the Cheras roundabout when another car abruptly came to a complete stop in front of her.
“She could not stop in time and hit rear of the vehicle, ” he said when contacted on Wednesday (Aug 14).
He said a man then got out of the other vehicle and flew into a rage and began hurling expletives at her.
“The man then started hitting the vehicle's side mirror until it broke off and threw it at her vehicle as she tried to drive off.
“She then drove to the Sungai Besi police station where she filed a police report on the matter, ” he said, adding that police managed to arrest a 27-year-old suspect three days later after he surrendered at the Cheras police headquarters.
ACP Mohamed Mokhsein said they have remanded the suspect to help with investigations into committing mischief resulting in loss or damage under Section 427 of the Penal Code.
“This could have easily been resolved as a minor traffic accident. Motorists should not take matters into their own hands and be patient with one another.
“If you find yourself in a similar situation, do not engage the aggressor and ignore him.
“If possible, get a brief description of the suspect and his vehicle number and drive to the nearest police station immediately, ” he said.
