The authorities did not charge the Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ) dog catcher who struck a senior citizen because the incident was unintentional.

In a statement today, MBPJ said the March 22 incident saw senior citizen – Patrick Khoo – trying to stop the dog catcher.

Khoo lodged a police report two days later, alleging that he was injured by the dog catcher – an incident caught on video and widely shared online.

However, prosecutors instead charged Khoo on March 31 with obstructing a civil servant from conducting their duties.

“No charges were laid against the MBPJ personnel because the dog-catching tool struck the complainant unintentionally during a struggle,” said MBPJ in a statement today.
