A video clip of a female Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) officer being harassed by two unidentified individuals whilst on duty has been making its round on social media.
The video, which was shared by Facebook page Selangor Press on Thursday, has been viewed more than 13,000 times in less than 13 hours:
According to a report by Utusan Online, the incident is believed to have happened at Bukit Rahman, Sungai Buloh around 10:24am when one of the MBSA officers was writing out a ticket for a car which reportedly had failed to display its parking coupon.
Soon after that, a woman, believed to be the owner of the vehicle, started shouting at the officer which then led to a heated argument between the two women.
Things then took a turn for the worse when the woman called for a man’s help, as they started harrassing the poor officer.
The couple then cornered the officer by boxing her into a space between two cars, preventing her from leaving the scene.
The two-minute video also showed the woman hanging on tightly to the officer’s uniform while the man allegedly tried to take her photo.
Thankfully, the officer managed to slip past the couple after the brief altercation with the help of a passer-by.
The officer later lodged a report at the Sungai Buloh District Police Headquarters (IPD).
Meanwhile, The Star Online reported that the police have arrested the couple.
Sungai Buloh OCPD Supt Dr Abdul Aziz Awang Darus told the news portal that the suspects, both in their 30s, were detained by a team of policemen and will be charged at the Shah Alam court on Friday.
“They were arrested on the day of the incident and referred to the deputy public prosecutor for the next course of action,” Supt Dr Abdul Aziz was quoted as saying.
