Cops looking for attackers at Ipoh mall seen in video


IPOH: The police are tracing several people seen hitting and kicking an individual, as shown in a video clip that has since gone viral.

The incident is believed to have happened inside a shopping mall here.

In the one-minute five-second clip, at least four youngsters are seen attacking the individual who is seen leaning against a wall while several others are gathered around.

Ipoh OCPD ACP Yahaya Hassan said the police came across the video that had gone viral after it was posted by a Facebook account holder identified as “Melvin Zheng Wenxin”.

“A police report has been lodged and we are tracking down all the individuals involved in the incident to help in investigation," he said.

The case is being investigated under Section 147 of the Penal Code for rioting and Section 233 of the Multimedia and Communications Act 1998 for misusing network facilities and services.

“The public has been urged not to speculate on the case as it could jeopardise police investigation,” he said in a statement on Tuesday (Jan 18).

ACP Yahaya also urged the victim and those with information to come forward to assist in investigation by going to the Ipoh police district headquarters or contacting the investigating officer ASP Norshaharah Marzuki at 012-507 7026.
