Cops looking for woman in steering lock attack

2018-06-13

KUALA LUMPUR: A woman who lost her cool after her car was clamped almost injured a worker on duty with a steering lock.

Despite the attack, the 31-year-old victim, who was contracted by Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), was unharmed.

Sentul OCPD Asst Comm R. Munusamy said the complainant was working at Metro Perdana Barat, Kepong, on June 4 at the time.

“The suspect, upon finding that her car had been clamped, came up to the complainant and asked that he release the vehicle without paying (a fine). The complainant insisted on payment.

ACP Munusamy said a report was made only on June 5 because the complainant was instructed to do so by his employer.

“The report was made for recording purposes and not to seek action under the law as the complainant suffered no injuries and was only hit lightly,” he added.

Police are still trying to track down the woman.

A video of the attack went viral on social media earlier this week.

The video misidentified the victim as a DBKL officer.
