KUALA LUMPUR: A middle-aged man, believed to be a Datuk, who berated and assaulted a carpark attendant at a hotel here on Sept 18 over an unpaid parking ticket has had his statement recorded by police.
Brickfields district police chief Assistant Commissioner Ruslan Khalid said the man’s statement was taken in Brickfields and that the investigation will be referred to the deputy public prosecutor.
“This is a legal summons case, which means an arrest cannot be made without a warrant under Section 323 of the Penal Code,” he said yesterday.
Police confirmed that a closed-circuit television (CCTV) recording of the incident, in which a man is seen scolding and physically abusing a parking attendant, was related to the case. The video has since gone viral on social media.
According to the parking attendant, the man began to lash out when he refused to raise the exit boom gate at the parking lot after the man was found not to have paid for a RM3 parking ticket.
Ruslan said the parking attendant lodged a police report one day after the incident on Sept 19.
