The foreign worker that was assaulted by a man after sitting in his car to wash the interior windshield and reportedly sustained a broken nose has had justice dealt on his side. His assailant had been arrested in Damansara yesterday, writes The Star.
The video (below) showing CCTV footage of the man getting very angry at the foreign worker sitting in his Range Rover Evoque has been making the rounds on social media and generating quite a bit of outrage over the blatant act of bullying and intimidation.
"We have opened an investigation paper under Section 325 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing grievous hurt," said Selangor police chief Comm Datuk Abdul Samah Mat.
The foreign worker’s employer and owner of the cash wash, Atie Abdul Hamid, says the man accused the worker of dirtying his car by sitting in it and allegedly demanded an RM1,000 compensation for the few seconds the worker spent inside cleaning the car.
Atie also claims that the video footage she uploaded did not capture the whole incident. Off camera, the foreign worker was struck again by the disgruntled luxury SUV owner, whereupon the worker started to “bleed non-stop”.
A visit the hospital later confirmed that the worker had a broken nose. As of now, he is still under their care.
There's just something about cars. It's a conveyance, it's a liability, it's a tool; but it can also be a source of joy, pride, inspiration and passion. It's much like clothes versus fashion. And like the latter, the pursuit of perfection never ends.
