The Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) have arrested two cleaning supervisors on the suspicion of beating two individuals, including a victim believed to be disabled (OKU), near the Tun Abdul Razak Complex (KOMTAR) in Penang.

Based on a report by Berita Harian, two local men, aged 27 and 43, were arrested following a police report that was lodged by a victim on 10 October.

Timur Laut District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Soffian Santong, shared that the victim claimed he had seen two suspects beating a disabled homeless man near a bank at about 2pm on 6 October.

Following that, the complainant is said to have recorded the suspects’ actions on his mobile phone.

“However, the suspects had allegedly gotten angry with the complainant’s action (of recording the incident) and repeatedly hit him with a cane, resulting in the complainant being injured on the back of his body, his right elbow and left calf,”

“The complainant then came forward to lodge a police report and seek treatment at the Penang Hospital (HPP). Though, the disabled victim has not been traced so far,” he said.

Soffian added that police officers detained the two suspects to assist in the investigation, seizing two rattan canes believed to be used in the incident.

Based on the results of the preliminary investigation, the two suspects were apparently often seen beating homeless people and beggars in the area.

“Results of urine screening tests found that both were negative for alcohol consumption. The results of the record examination found that one of the suspects involved had two previous criminal records,”

“Both suspects were remanded for two days to assist in the investigation of the case under Section 324 of the Penal Code, which is to inflict injuries using a weapon. A complete investigation paper will be handed over to the Deputy Public Prosecutor’s office for further instructions,” he added.

Earlier, several video recordings on the incident had spread through social media, claiming that one of the victims was beaten in a public place as well as a disabled man left bloody with injuries on his head.
