KUALA LUMPUR: A man caught on video slashing two other men in Cheras for bothering his wife is being pursued by the police.
The video has gone viral since it first appeared on social media yesterday.
Cheras OCPD Asst Comm Zam Halim Jamaluddin said the 45-year-old suspect got into a fight with two men, aged 22 and 23, for bothering his wife on Friday.
“The incident occurred at Jalan Mutiara Raya, Cheras.
“Once police were alerted, personnel from the crime prevention patrol rushed to the scene and discovered two victims had been injured after being slashed,” he said.
ACP Zam Halim said further investigation led to the arrest of a 39-year-old woman in Taman Seri Aman in Cheras.
“She was detained as we believe she might have been in cahoots with the main suspect. She was also at the crime scene when the incident occurred.
“We urge the public not to speculate on the incident,” he added.
ACP Zam Halim also urged those with information to contact the KL police hotline at 03-2115 9999 or Cheras police hotline at 03-9284 5050/5051 or the nearest police station.
In an unrelated case, eight armed robbers broke into a house in Taman Bukit Kinrara in Puchong, Selangor, and escaped with cash and jewellery worth more than RM5,000.
Serdang OCPD Asst Comm AA Anbalagan said a 24-year-old man was standing in his home’s compound at about 4am yesterday when eight masked men armed with machetes approached him.
“One of the assailants punched the victim’s face several times and forced him to reveal where he kept his money.
“The suspects then forced the victim to let them into the house. They also forced the victim’s mother to hand over her jewellery,” he said in a statement.
The suspects then ransacked every room in the house before escaping, added ACP Anbalagan.
“The suspects escaped with about 3.5kg of jewellery and about RM5,000 cash.
“We urge those with information to contact the police as soon as possible,” he said.
