Man nabbed in road bully case in PJ


PETALING JAYA: Police have arrested a man in connection with a road bully case here.

Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said they received a report from an 18-year-old student on Tuesday (Oct 27) night on the incident.

"She claimed she was driving her car in the left lane near the Mutiara Damansara bus stop when a Perodua Alza driven by a man suddenly entered her lane.

"She sounded her horn in the incident and then realised the suspect was tailing her until the Jalan Persiaran Bukit Utama," he said in a statement on Thursday (Oct 29).

He said when the motorist stopped her vehicle the suspect approached the vehicle and kicked the bumper and punched one of the windows.

"She claimed the suspect also tried to open one of the doors.

"When she drove off the suspect once again kicked the victim's vehicle," he said, adding that the next day, police arrested the 32-year-old suspect along Jalan Penchala.

He said the case has been classified as criminal intimidation and committing mischief and causing damage.

Meanwhile, ACP Nik Ezanee said a 33-year-old woman was arrested for lodging a false report over a robbery.

"We received a report at 9.18pm on Thursday by the woman claiming she was robbed of her bracelet and ring by two men while waiting at a bus stop near an apartment at Section 17 here.

"We conducted investigations and found that the woman had lodged many police reports on other robberies previously which began to cast suspicion on her story.

"We then brought the woman to the scene and asked her to show us how she was robbed but she could not reenact the situation or show the exact place it occurred," he said, adding that after upon further probing, the woman confessed that she lodged a false report and the robbery never occurred.

ACP Nik Ezanee said the woman claimed she lodged the report as she was worried that her mother would scold her for losing the jewellery.

"We take this sort of behaviour very seriously and remind the public not to lodge police reports carelessly or for their own personal interests," he said.
