Datuk Seri in video surrenders to police

GEORGE TOWN — A motorist who went berserk after he realised his actions were being recorded by a security guard at a condominium in Jelutong on Saturday turned himself in to the police yesterday.

District police chief ACP Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said the Datuk Seri, in his 50s, surrenders at
about 11am.

“We took him into custody to assist with investigations and will obtain a remand order from court,” he said.

A 40-second video, which went viral, showed the suspect, who lives at the condominium, trying to break loose a tyre clamp on his car at about 4pm.

The car was said to be clamped due to unauthorised parking at the hop-on hop-off area of the condominium. The suspect then noticed the security guard was recording him and he assaulted him with the cutter.

The 43-year-old security guard continued to record the incident and he sustained injuries on the face and body.

The suspect and the security guard lodged police reports on the same evening. It is believed police have retrieved the condominium’s closed-circuit television footage.

The case is being investigated under Section 324 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means.
