Senior citizen wanted by police for hurling profanities at toll plaza employee


KUALA LUMPUR: The police are tracking down a senior citizen who hurled profanities at a toll plaza employee at Duke expressway on Sunday (April 21).

Kuala Lumpur police chief Comm Datuk Rusdi Mohd Isa (pic) said the 20-year-old victim lodged a police report on the incident that occurred at 11.15pm on Sunday.

"The incident occurred when the suspect, who was driving a Honda Civic, could not pass through the toll due to the low balance in his Touch N Go account.

"The suspect then scolded the victim when she asked him to pay via debit card.

"It occurred as seen in the viral video," he told a press conference on Wednesday (April 24).

The suspect, 60, has been identified, he said.

"We will track down and arrest the suspect as soon as possible," he said.

Earlier, a video went viral on social media of a man scolding a toll plaza employee.

The man tried to pay the toll fee with cash, but it was rejected, as only debit cards and Touch N Go were accepted.

Due to his actions, the toll plaza employee has no choice but to accept the cash payment.
