PETALING JAYA: Police have arrested a 24-year-old man for assaulting a Nepali security guard with a golf club after the guard clamped his car for parking in an OKU spot for disabled parking.
Wangsa Maju police chief Rajab Ahad Ismail said the victim, in his 30s, was on his rounds when he came across a Honda Jazz parked in a bay reserved for motorists with disabilities.
He then proceeded to clamp the wheels.
Half an hour later, two men approached him and asked him to remove the clamp. He declined, saying they would have to first settle a fine.
They ignored him and attempted to dismantle the device.
“He reprimanded them, telling them not to vandalise the clamp,” said Rajab. “All of a sudden one of the suspects scolded the guard and punched him in the face, then retrieved a golf club from the boot and struck the victim.”
A video clip of the incident was widely shared but appeared to have been taken down later in the evening.
Rajab said the suspect, from Terengganu, was later arrested and is being investigated under for voluntarily causing hurt.
The guard, who sustained injuries to his right arm and ear, is receiving treatment at Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
