KUALA LUMPUR – Police were forced to fire at a four-wheel drive, which had two people under the influence of drugs inside, when the driver attempted to crash the vehicle into two officers in Jalan Gurney and Jalan Raja Chulan on Thursday.

In the 4.45pm incident, a police team spotted a Nissan Frontier driven by a man in a suspicious manner in Jalan Gurney. A female passenger, aged 24, was with him.

Wangsa Maju district police chief Supt Rajab Ahad Ismail, in a statement today, said officers ordered the driver, 26, to stop, but he refused.

“Instead, the driver sped away towards Jalan Tun Razak before he was caught in a traffic jam. When a policeman approached the vehicle, the driver attempted to ram into (the officer), and this caused the policeman to fire a shot, which hit the rear tyre of the vehicle.

“The suspect drove away in a reckless manner towards the city, crashing into several vehicles along the way, before almost crashing into a traffic policeman in Jalan Raja Chulan.”

He said the driver and passenger were finally apprehended in front of Lot 10 in Bukit Bintang.

Drug tests conducted on the duo returned positive.

The male suspect has 10 records for drugs, theft and burglary, said Rajab.

Both suspects have been remanded for five days, until Tuesday, to facilitate investigations. – Bernama, December 26, 2020

KUALA LUMPUR: Police were forced to fire at a four-wheel-drive (4WD) vehicle , with two individuals believed to be under the influence of drugs inside, when it fled after attempting to crash into two policemen at Jalan Gurney and Jalan Raja Chulan last Thursday.

The incident occurred about 4.45pm when a police team spotted a Nissan Frontier 4WD at Jalan Gurney driven by a man, and a 24-year-old woman as passenger, in a suspicious manner.

Wangsa Maju district police chief Supt Rajab Ahad Ismail said the police ordered the driver, aged 26, to stop, but he did not.

“Instead, the driver sped away towards Jalan Tun Razak before being caught in a traffic jam. When a policeman approached the vehicle, the driver attempted to ram into him (police) and this caused the policeman to fire a shot which hit the rear tyre of the 4WD.

“However, the suspect drove away in a reckless manner towards the city, crashing into several vehicles along the way before almost crashing into a traffic policeman on Jalan Raja Chulan,“ he said in a statement today.

Rajab said the police finally arrested the suspects in front of Lot 10, Bukit Bintang.

It was found that the two suspects fled for fear of being arrested by the police as they were under the influence of drugs, he said, adding that tests conducted on their urine found both of them positive for drug.

He said it was also found that the man had 10 previous records for drug cases, theft, and burglary.
