A video posted on Twitter yesterday shows a blue-coloured Perodua Myvi being pursued through downtown KL by several motorcyclists
The man behind the wheels of the blue Myvi had reportedly assaulted and robbed a disabled person at Jalan Changkat in Kuala Lumpur
According to a report in New Straits Times, several witnesses saw the suspect manhandling the disabled person, robbing him and then stealing the victim's Myvi in a bid to escape.
As the suspect tried to escape in the Myvi, several motorcycles gave chase, shouting at the man to surrender. They also screamed "Dia samun orang" (He robbed someone).
A hot pursuit followed, during which the suspect could be seen ramming into several cars stuck in the rush hour traffic along the way
The Star reported KL Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department chief Assistant Commissioner (ACP) Zulkefly Yahya saying that the incident was captured by a 20-year-old food delivery rider.
"He then chased after the driver and told him to pull over but the driver drove on," ACP Zulkefly said, adding that the suspect hit four cars as he tried to escape from the several motorcyclists chasing him.
The suspect, identified as a 25-year-old civil servant working for the Road Transport Department (RTD), was eventually apprehended
Once caught by the people t around 5.20pm on Jalan Brunei Utara, the 25-year-old civil servant was then forcibly removed from the victim's blue-coloured Perodua Myvi.
"The suspect was taken to the Dang Wangi district police headquarters for an investigation," ACP Zulkefly was quoted as saying by New Straits Times.
According to ACP Zulkefly, they are trying to piece together the truth behind why the suspect pushed the disabled person out of the Myvi.
The case is being investigated for reckless and dangerous driving.
