KUALA LUMPUR: Three men have been detained in connection with creating a ruckus at a restaurant along Jalan Tun Sambathan.
Kuala Lumpur police chief Comm Datuk Saiful Azly Kamaruddin said the three men, aged between 27 and 35 years old, were detained at about 1am Monday (March 1).
"A group of men went to a restaurant as it was about to close at 10pm on Sunday (Feb 28), in compliance with Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs).
"However, the group of men got angry and began trashing the place," he told a press conference after attending the Covid-19 vaccination drive involving Kuala Lumpur police officers and personnel at the Jinjang Health Clinic on Monday.
Comm Saiful Azly said police are still looking for eight other men involved in the ruckus.
"We are investigating under section 147 of the Penal Code for rioting without weapons," he added.
Asked whether the group of men were gang members, Comm Saiful Azly said the police are still investigating the matter.
A video of a group men causing a ruckus at a restaurant along Jalan Tun Sambathan on Sunday night had gone viral on social media.
The men were seen throwing tables and chairs all over the restaurant.
The group was also seen fighting with the restaurant workers.
Apparently the group of men were not happy when they were turned down service by restaurant workers as the restaurant was about to close.
