Previously, a viral video showed a Proton Saga driver physically assaulting a food delivery rider at the Jalan Langat-Klang traffic light junction.
A food rider sustained injuries to his lips, ribs, and legs after he was physically assaulted by a road bully at the traffic light intersection along Jalan Langat-Klang, Selangor, on 1 September.
The 21-year-old victim also suffered losses of RM250 after the ‘cover set’ of his LC135 motorcycle was damaged during the altercation around 7.15pm.
South Klang police chief Assistant Commissioner Cha Hoong Fong said the incident happened after the delivery rider honked at the Proton Saga driver for driving recklessly and nearly colliding with him.
There were two other men in the car at the time of the incident. The driver, feeling dissatisfied, confronted the rider and damaged the motorcycle before physically assaulting him.
One of the suspects also pushed the victim until the victim fell. The victim was also choked, punched in the face, and kicked in the stomach and legs several times.
A video of the incident went viral in which a man was seen scolding and beating the food rider at the traffic light junction. The man also kicked the victim’s motorcycle until the vehicle fell on the road.
The suspect was finally stopped by members of the public who were nearby.
