Cops nab four for rioting after video of clash goes viral

KAJANG: Police have arrested four men after a video of a clash between two groups went viral on social media and WhatsApp.

Kajang OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zaid Hassan said they were alerted following a distress call on a fight at 6.37pm on Sunday (Jan 31).

"We were informed that a group of men armed with parang were fighting at Taman Juara Jaya, Batu 9, Cheras.

"In the incident, two victims were rushed to hospital after suffering multiple injuries," he said Monday (Feb 1).

He said they also believed three cars were abandoned by suspects and victims at the scene.

"The cause of the incident is still being investigated.

"We arrested four suspects and will remand them to help with investigations," he said, adding that the case was being investigated under Section 326 and Section 148 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing grievous hurt and rioting.

In the 44-second video, a group of men can be seen holding objects believed to be parang while running away and getting into the vehicles.

A black pickup truck is then seen ramming into a white car before ramming into a red car.

A man can then be heard shouting to witnesses warning them against taking pictures of the incident.
