MALAYSIA: A now-deleted video was once shared on the Facebook account known as KAMI Pengguna JALAN RAYA on Monday (2 Oct).
This video captured a distressing incident in which a 21-year-old motorcyclist found himself surrounded by three men.
Shockingly, these individuals allegedly attacked the young motorcyclist because he had honked his horn.
The incident unfolded at the Jalan Langat-Klang traffic light intersection, with the victim heading towards Klang.
As a result of the altercation, the motorcyclist sustained severe injuries.
According to Assistant Commissioner Cha Hoong Fong, the Chief of South Klang District Police, the victim had honked his horn at a Proton Saga car that was driving recklessly, narrowly avoiding a collision.
This act led to a heated confrontation at the intersection, during which one of the car’s occupants physically assaulted the motorcyclist.
The victim, a local citizen, took the step of filing a police report at 12.44 am on Monday (2 Oct), detailing the horrifying events that occurred on Sunday (1 Oct), at 7.15 pm local time.
During the altercation, the victim was forcibly removed from his motorcycle, subjected to strangulation, and endured punches to his face and kicks to his stomach and legs.
Assistant Commissioner Cha Hoong Fong described the violence unleashed upon the victim, resulting in severe pain, swelling on his lips, ribs, and legs, and financial losses of RM250 (US$53) due to motorcycle damage.
Although local bystanders tried to intervene and end the violence, the attacker remained relentless.
Before leaving the scene, the aggressor further vented his anger by repeatedly kicking the victim’s motorcycle, causing additional damage.
