PETALING JAYA – The man who allegedly hit a foreign worker in the face, breaking his nose, has been arrested by police.
The man, in his 30s, was arrested in Damansara here on Sunday.
“We have opened an investigation paper under Section 325 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing grievous hurt,” said Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Abdul Samah Mat after presenting excellent service award certificates to 96 personnel.
Comm Abdul Samah added that the police were in the process of applying for remand.
On Saturday, The Star reported that a closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage showed a man scolding and striking the foreign worker, who was seen holding a washcloth in the front seat of a luxury SUV.
According to car wash owner Atie Abdul Hamid, who uploaded the video, the man accused the worker of dirtying his car.
She alleged that the man also refused to pay for the car wash and instead asked for RM1,000 in compensation.
Atie claimed the worker was slapped a second time at another location, causing the worker to “bleed non-stop”.
After visiting a clinic, the worker was referred to a hospital where doctors confirmed that the worker had a broken nose.
When contacted, Atie said that the worker was still in hospital. – The Star
