A video of a motorcyclist violently attacking a man in Sabah recently went viral on social media
On Monday, 27 July, Facebook user Ivy Lyenn shared several videos of her husband being physically assaulted at Api-Api Centre in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
The post read, "Today I am really disappointed to see the case of my husband getting beaten up in front of our 12-year-old son go viral. If only I was in the car at the time."
The video garnered over 49,000 views. Ivy then explained that the video was recorded by someone else and she plans to use it as evidence to sue the attacker in question.
In another post, the woman said that her husband was attacked for merely honking at the man
The post read,"Today you attacked my husband without a reason. Without any fault. Only because he honked at you, you started attacking people."
"He honked at you because he did not want to crash into you and kill you. I know my husband very well. He would never fight someone no matter what. I know him. It is a shame I was not there when you assaulted him. My 12-year-old child was in the car. He was very traumatised to see his father get beaten up right before his eyes," she added.
In the video, the victim can be seen apologising profusely before getting punched and kicked in the face
The attacker has since been identified and arrested by the police
According to Borneo Today, the man is a 35-year-old car repossessor known as 'Lunchai' and he was apprehended at his home in Taman Sempelang around 11.30pm yesterday.
An initial inspection found that the suspect has 16 previous criminal records.
Habibi said, "The suspect's record shows that he was previously involved in drug abuse, theft, and causing hurt."
The case is currently being investigated under Section 324 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt.
