Cops tracking down suspect, dashcam owner in Selayang road rage incident


GOMBAK: Police are looking for witnesses to an alleged road rage incident that was captured on video and circulated on social media.

The 1min, 14sec video, believed to be dashcam footage, shows a white MyVi initially making a U-turn along Jalan Taman Selayang Jaya here.

The driver then attempts to overtake the car with the dashcam in a dangerous manner and tries to block its way.

The MyVi is then seen overtaking the recording car again and braking in the middle of the road.

The driver of the MyVi is seen thumping its door with his hand before exiting the vehicle and charging at the other car with an object in his hand.

Gombak OCPD Asst Comm Zainal Mohamed Mohamed said they were alerted about the video at 10.18am on Monday (July 4).

"A police report has been lodged and we are in the midst of tracking down both the suspect and the owner of the dashcam footage.

"We have opened investigations under Section 42(1) of the Road Transport Act for driving in a reckless and inconsiderate manner," he said.

He urged anyone with information on the case to contact Insp Mohd Shaifuddin Mohd Nor at 017-6645 812 or 03-6126 2222.
