Local actor cum comedian Mazlan Ahmad has lodged a police report over an incident that happened on Labour Day, 1 May in Kuala Lumpur
Mazlan, who is known as Lan Pet Pet, was seen assaulting a food delivery rider near the Russian Embassy here. The incident, which was caught on camera, took place around 6.30pm.
In a statement on Tuesday, 4 May, Wangsa Maju police chief Supt Ashari Abu Samah said that the actor lodged the complaint after his department flagged the video recording on the incident.
Ashari stated that during the incident, a scuffle broke out between the actor and the delivery rider over a misunderstanding on the road
According to the Wangsa Maju police chief, the delivery rider has not yet lodged a report.
"He should lodge a report too so we can investigate," he said.
Ashari also urged those with information to contact the Kuala Lumpur police headquarters at 03-21159999, Wangsa Maju police headquarters at 03-92899222, or any nearby police station
In the video, a man, allegedly the actor, is seen charging at the food delivery rider while shouting that he is "not an ordinary person"
He could be seen choking the delivery rider in front of the Russian embassy.
It took a few other motorcyclists to forcefully free the delivery rider from the actor's hands. The actor, seen wearing a white T-shirt, continued to hit the delivery rider while threatening him.
This isn't the first time the actor has been in the news.
Back in April 2019, Mazlan was caught on camera repeatedly punching a 68-year-old security guard on the face and also kicking the victim.
At the time, he was charged at the Seremban Magistrate's Court in Negeri Sembilan.
He was slapped with a fine of RM2,000 and spent a day in jail
The altercation began when the guard, known as Yahya Manap, apparently confronted the actor about his failure to sign in as a visitor before entering an enclosed neighbourhood.
