PETALING JAYA: The two men who rammed into several vehicles, including a police car, to escape capture near Sierramas, Sungai Buloh, will be charged in court on Friday (March 5).
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said both suspects will be produced in front of the Petaling Jaya court at 9am on Friday.
"Investigating Officer Insp Chew Yong Hoa received the order to charge the suspects from the Selangor deputy public prosecutor.
"The 35-year-old suspect is expected to be charged for attempted murder, committing mischief and causing damage, obstructing a public servant from dispensing their duties, possessing offensive weapons and unlawfully keeping another persons identity card.
"The 40-year-old suspect is expected to be charged with obstructing a public servant from dispensing their duties and consorting with a person carrying corrosive or explosive substances," he said in a statement on Thursday (March 4).
It was reported that a video of a motorist ramming his car into other vehicles at a traffic light before fleeing from the police have gone viral.
The one-minute, 45-second video shows a policeman approaching a Proton Waja at a traffic light in a bid to stop the driver.
The driver was seen ignoring the policeman, who was trying to get him to alight from the car.
Another policeman was also seen approaching the vehicle but the driver chose to reverse his car into another vehicle before ramming the sides of a lorry and another car in front.
One of the police personnel was also seen shooting at the tyres of the car, but the suspect managed to speed off by squeezing between the lorry and car.
The incident allegedly occurred at the Sierramas Traffic light in Sungai Buloh between 12.50pm and 1pm on Friday (Feb 26).
One of the suspects was arrested a few hours after the incident about one kilometre away from the scene.
The other suspect was arrested at an apartment at Shah Alam the following day.
