"During the journey, the woman had tried to overtake a gray car but could not do so. The driver of the gray car then made some obscene gesture," he said in a statement on Tuesday (June 6).

He said that the driver – who is a factory supervisor - then got out of his vehicle and knocked on the windshield of the woman' car.

"When she wound down the car window, the suspect scolded her and hit her forehead while uttering threatening words," he added.

A video of the incident was also found on one Saleha Fayyad's Facebook page on Tuesday.

Comm Mohd Yusri said a police report was lodged by the woman at the Saujana Utama Sungai Buloh police station in Selangor on Tuesday at about 10am.

"Checks on the registration number of the car driven by the man found that it was registered under the name of a woman whose address was in Tanjong Karang, Selangor.

"The police managed to locate the man in Serdang, Selangor," he said.

"The man will be taken to the Tapah district police station to facilitate investigation under Section 323/506/509 of the Penal Code," he added.
