KUALA LUMPUR: A man who was charged with assaulting women on a pedestrian bridge near the Bank Negara Malaysia building here may be back to his old antics.
The issue resurfaced when a viral video showed the suspect kicking a woman down a flight of stairs on the bridge near an LRT station before nonchalantly walking away from the scene at around 1.30pm on Monday (Nov 6).
The 34-year-old victim appeared to be shocked by the attack and suffered backaches from the fall.
She later lodged a report at the Dang Wangi police station.
Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Shaharuddin Abdullah said police believe that the same suspect could have been behind similar incidents there in the past.
