The man claimed the woman drove dangerously on the road in Tapah and hit her head for talking back at him.
A 29-year-old man who hit a woman’s head was arrested in Serdang, Selangor, on 6 June.
In the viral video, the suspect wearing a red shirt exited his Proton Persona and knocked on the woman’s car window.
He claimed she drove dangerously and was “playing with people’s lives.” When the woman claimed she overtook on the dotted line, he hit her head in anger for talking back.
The man also threatened to beat up her 17-year-old brother who was sitting on the front passenger side.
The incident is believed to have taken place while both cars were travelling from Cameron Highlands towards Tapah, Perak.

Senang hati main tunjal kepala org
Abang ‘sado’ biadap, tunjal kepala pemandu wanita
Kecoh di media sosial hari ini apabila kelibat seorang abang sado bersikap biadap dengan menunjal dahi kepala seorang pemandu wanita… pic.twitter.com/mUDPzcBIAO
According to the police statement, the 24-year-old victim lodged a police report at Saujana Utama police station in Sungai Buloh, Selangor.
Investigations revealed that the man’s car was registered under a woman’s name with an address at Tanjong Karang, Selangor.
The suspect, a factory supervisor, was traced to Serdang, Selangor, and arrested.
Police said the suspect will be brought to IPD Tapah for further investigation. The case will be investigated under Section 323, Section 506 and Section 509 of the Penal Code.
The viral video garnered criticism from netizens. While they understood that the woman might have driven dangerously, they agreed what the man did next was wrong.
Netizens said the man should have calmly told her off or advised her, but he shouldn’t have raised his hand to hit her.
He can tell her nicely what she did is wrong (if the girl really intended to overtake), that’s how gentleman should talk, but no matter what he cannot touch her like that. Not even slap, not even an inch he could touch. Girl, please report!— R (@hafeezpen) June 6, 2023
Kalau perempuan tu salah cukup kau dah maki dia, jangan sentuh dia dah. Tak kesah la kau geram sekali pon. Once kau sentuh memang kau silap. Kalau dia bawak macam sial sekali pon kau record ke apa ke as bukti. Ni kau turun dah babi babi maki hamun siap ugut. Silap besar dah situ.— 🕊 (@Officialwaniie) June 6, 2023
