MALAYSIA: A viral video posted on December 4 showed a driver behind the wheel of a Perodua Bezza car being pursued by 28 police patrol units (MPVs).

It was later revealed that the driver was wanted for his involvement in an armed robbery.

According to a report by Kosmo!Online, the suspect, a 27-year-old local individual, has a history that includes 10 records. Six of these involve various criminal offenses, while the remaining four are related to drug offenses.

Assistant Commissioner Mohamad Fakhrudin Abdul Hamid, Chief of Police for the Petaling Jaya District, stated that the PJ Police Headquarters received a report regarding the incident around 1:42 am.

He mentioned that the suspect fled from a police inspection while on the shoulder of Jalan Utara, entering the Federal Highway towards Shah Alam.

“When reaching Jalan PJS 6/1 Sungei Way, the suspect’s vehicle collided with members of the motorcycle patrol unit, resulting in injuries.

Assistance was requested, and a total of 28 MPVs from IPD Sepang, Serdang, Subang Jaya, and officers from the D4 branch of IPD here were assigned to pursue the suspect for over 50 kilometers.”

“The chase continued through the Damansara Puchong Highway and the New Pantai Expressway, eventually leading to the apprehension of the suspect at the Taman Tasik Cyberjaya Roundabout in Sepang,” he said in a statement on 6 December.

He further stated that a knife, scissors, gloves, a motorcycle helmet, other individuals’ identification cards, and a debit card were found in the car.

Both the driver and a 21-year-old female passenger, with no prior record, were detained and presented at the Petaling Jaya Magistrate’s Court.

They were remanded under Section 117 of the Criminal Procedure Code for four days.

During the apprehension attempt, two other men managed to escape by jumping out of the moving vehicle, as reported by New Straits Times.

“The case is being investigated under Section 186 of the Penal Code, Section 279 of the Penal Code, Section 353 of the Penal Code, and Section 28(1) of the Minor Offenses Act 1955,” he added.
