PETALING JAYA: Police are expected to charge the drunk driver who rammed his pickup truck into several people at a hawker site in Bukit Sentosa on Friday (May 22).

Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm Datuk Fadzil Ahmat said the 32-year-old suspect was expected to face charges under Section 307 of the Penal Code and Section 90 of the Police Act for attempted murder and disorderly conduct at a police station.

"The 25-year-old Myanmar woman, who was with the suspect, will also face charges under Section 6(1) of the Immigration Act for not having valid documents.

"Both will be charged at the Kuala Kubu Baru courthouse on Friday (May 29)," he said in a statement on Thursday (May 28).

It was reported that police were waiting for several reports before wrapping up their investigation papers (IP) over the case.

Five people were injured after the driver of a pickup truck ran amok and drove wildly, knocking into bystanders at a parking lot in Bukit Sentosa where food stalls had been set up in the May 22 incident.

It was reported that police later remanded the man.

The suspect, a tyre wholesaler, does not have a criminal record, and the case is being investigated under Section 307 of the Penal Code and Section 42(1) of the Road Transport Act 1987.

Police have advised the public not to make any assumptions about the incident and to have full confidence in the police investigation.

The suspect is believed to have lost his temper when a man knocked his car's side mirror when he blared his horn during a traffic congestion near Jalan Besar Bukit Sentosa.

Videos of the incident went viral on social media, showing a four-wheel-drive vehicle ramming into hawker stalls and people at the Pekan Bukit Sentosa hawker site.
