Selangor cops seek two more suspects in football hooligan attack


SERDANG: The hunt is still on for two men involved in an attack on rival fans and an aborted rampage by football hooligans, Selangor police say.

“We have arrested a total of 23 people and of those, we plan to charge eight.

“We are continuing investigations of two suspects still at large,” Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Hussein Omar Khan said after officiating a safety event at the Solaris Putra Petronas station on Friday (Dec 1).

On Saturday (Nov 25), two black buses were spotted near the MBPJ Stadium just as a fight broke out between supporters before the Malaysian Super League match between Selangor and Perak.

Five people were beaten up, one suffering a broken hand. The group reportedly also damaged four cars at random.

The buses were detained and 20 male suspects aged 16 to 36 were quickly rounded up at the scene.

Comm Hussein had said the day after the incident that police believed the suspects planned the attacks and came with bad intentions.

“If the police did not take swift action, I believe the situation would have been worse with more vehicles damaged," he said.

On an unrelated matter, Comm Hussein said four suspects involved in the kidnapping of a Bangladeshi reporter, including one of the policemen arrested, have been charged in court.

“The four were charged on Nov 22 at the Kuala Selangor Magistrate's Court,” he said.
