[VIDEO] Man Arrested After Intentionally Throwing Himself At A Moving Car
Earlier today, 15 April, police arrested a 25-year-old man
The man, who is said to be from Myanmar, was caught on dashcam footage as he intentionally threw himself at a moving car's windshield — allegedly to scam the driver — in Klang last Thursday, 7 April.
According to North Klang district police chief ACP S Vijaya Rao, a police team had received a tip-off against the suspect, who was then detained from his workplace at 10am in Jalan Shapadu Rantau Panjang, Klang.
He has been since been remanded to assist in the investigation under Section 336 of the Penal Code which covers punishment for an act that endangers life or the personal safety of others.
The clip of the incident had gone viral prior to the arrest.
In it, the man is seen charging toward the moving car that had just turned a left corner and then launches himself into its windshield.
While the car is seen moving at a slow pace, its windshield cracks due to the impact of the suspect's actions. He slides to the ground before a group of people appear and surround the driver.
The driver, who lodged a police report the same day, told the man and the group of people to wait for the police to settle the issue as his car has a dashcam that recorded the incident.
However, as soon as the suspect learns about the dashcam, he makes a run for it.
He faces three months in jail, a fine of RM500, or both if found guilty
The dashcam footage, about 45-seconds in length, can be viewed here:
