Cops nab road bully in Penang for assaulting woman with helmet

BALIK PULAU: Another alleged road bullying incident was reported here after police detained a man on suspicion of attacking a female driver.

Balik Pulau OCPD Supt Kamarul Rizal Jenal said a 32-year-old suspect was picked up by police after he was believed to have been involved in the incident which happened on Thursday (June 8).

"We discovered a 14-second video uploaded on social media; the video alleged that the suspect had attacked the driver with a helmet," he said in a statement.

Supt Kamarul said investigations found that the suspect, a motorcyclist, was not happy with the driver, who allegedly caused an accident earlier. He said the suspect then attacked the female driver with a helmet.

He said the man would be brought to court for a remand order on Saturday (June 10).

The case was being investigated under Section 324 of the Penal Code.

Supt Kamarul urged witnesses, or those who had any information on the incident, to contact the district police headquarters at 04-866 2222 to assist investigations.

On Friday (June 9), Tapah Magistrate's Court sentenced another man, Mohammad Zaim Faiz Tarmizi, 29, for assaulting a female driver in a separate incident in Lata Iskandar, to seven days in prison.

A 59-second video of the incident went viral on social media on Monday (June 5), which led to Mohamad Zaim’s arrest in Serdang, Selangor on Tuesday (June 6).
