Gang members arrested over ruckus at entertainment outlet


KUALA LUMPUR: A group of thugs have been arrested for allegedly causing a ruckus at an entertainment outlet here and hitting a policeman.

The group is also believed to have demanded protection money from the owner.

City CID chief Senior Asst Comm Nik Ros Azhan Nik Abd Hamid said the incident occurred at around 11.30pm on Nov 25.

"We received a report from a woman who claimed a group of men were causing damage at an entertainment outlet.

"The incident occurred because the owner refused to allow the group into the premises," he said in a statement on Friday (Nov 27).

He said a fight broke out involving 15 people, including four customers. One of the customers was a policeman.

"All the suspects have been remanded for two days for rioting while the policeman was released on bail as he was a victim in the case," said SAC Nik Ros Azhan, adding that police also received a report from the owner alleging that the group had extorted him and was demanding for protection money.

He said investigations revealed the group involved were members of the Batu 14 Puchong 18 Gang.

"We will not hesitate to take action under the Prevention of Crime Act and Security Offences (Special Measures) Act," he said.

Those with information on criminal activities should contact the police hotline at 03-2115 9999 or the KL police CID operations room at 03-2146 0670.
