Cops arrest five suspected gang members after video goes viral

KLANG: Police here arrested several suspected gang members after a video of them celebrating a birthday in a house was spread online.

North Klang OCPD Asst Comm Nurulhuda Mohd Salleh said that the police were alerted to the 30-second video on Wednesday (Aug 11), which showed a group of men cutting a cake with a samurai sword.

She said that a police team was dispatched on Wednesday, which led to five arrests in three separate areas on the same day.

ACP Nurulhuda said that the suspects were aged between 17 and 24 and added that three of the five had prior police records, including for armed robbery and gang robbery.

All suspects were then remanded until Friday (Aug 13), and the police were waiting for further instructions from the Attorney General's Chambers.

On the video itself, ACP Nurulhuda said in a statement on Saturday (Aug 14) that logos and signs in the video were visible, adding that these symbols were believed to be tied to Geng 08.

"The video was believed to have been shot at a house in Batu 10, Jalan Kapar. It also showed them not complying with Covid-19 standard operating procedures," she said.
