KULAI: A driver has been assaulted after he crashed his pick-up truck into a house in Taman Makmur here, say police.

Kulai OCPD Supt Tok Beng Yeow said police were notified about the incident at 2.11am on Wednesday (Aug 10) morning and immediately deployed a mobile patrol vehicle to the scene.

He said they arrested a 30-year-old suspect who had injuries to his face allegedly due to a beating from people there.
