KOTA KINABALU: A glue sniffer attacked two police cars with a parang and meat cleaver in Sabah’s southwestern Beaufort district.
The 40-year-old local man was apprehended but still tried to put up a fight as he was high.
Beaufort police chief Supt Ismail Abdullah said police received calls from villagers about a man who had become aggressive at Kampung Kiambor, Kuala Penyu, shortly after midnight on Sunday.
The two police cars were deployed to the village.
“On reaching the location, the suspect, armed with a parang in his left hand and a meat cleaver in the other, suddenly sprang out from a bush and swung at the vehicles before running away.
“Policemen managed to catch up with the suspect, but he still acted aggressively after being restrained,” Supt Ismail said yesterday.
He added that the two police cars were damaged.
The suspect has been remanded until tomorrow for investigations under Sections 506, 186 and 427 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation, obstructing public servants from discharging their duties and committing mischief.
