KUALA LUMPUR: Two more men have been arrested over a ruckus in front of a restaurant at Brickfields here.

Brickfields OCPD Asst Comm Anuar Omar said the two men were arrested at around 5.16pm on Tuesday (March 2).

"The two men, aged 24 and 25, were arrested in Taman Sri Sentosa.

"Both suspects do not have prior criminal records and have been handed over to the investigation officer for further action," he said on Wednesday (March 3).

He said with these arrests, the total number of suspects rounded up is nine.

Police on Tuesday arrested five men over a ruckus in front of a restaurant in Brickfields.

The incident occurred at 10.18pm on Feb 28.

The incident was sparked after a group of around 12 people were upset that they could not order food as the restaurant was already closed in compliance with the MCP standard operating procedures.

The group, armed with sticks and parang, became enraged, broke bottles and glasses and threw chairs.

There were at least 11 workers at the restaurant and three suffered multiple injuries.

Videos of the incident showing a group of men shouting and throwing tables and chairs outside the restaurant there went viral on social media and WhatsApp.

Those with information of the case are asked to contact the police at 03-2115 9999 or visit the nearest police station.
