KUALA LUMPUR: Police managed to stop a troubled 28-year-old man from potentially hurting himself at a flat in Bandar Tun Razak.
Cheras OCPD Asst Comm Mohamed Mokhsein Mohamed Zon said that police received a call about a commotion from inside the flat around 4.30am on Saturday (Aug 1) and a team went to investigate.
"The team heard a man screaming from inside the flat but attempts to calm him down failed and he threatened to run to the balcony," he said.
He added that police called the Fire and Rescue Department for help to unlock the front door and they managed to stop the man from going any further as soon as they gained entry.
ACP Mokhsein said the man is believed to have been troubled by family problems.
"He is unemployed and lives alone,” said ACP Mokhsein.
ACP Mokhsein added that the man also tested positive for amphetamine and methamphetamine and said that he has been detained for further investigations.
