Remember the Chinatown Condo Fight?
On 10 May 2020, a group of youths attacked another group of youths with parangs and a helmet.
One was sent to the hospital while 3 were arrested at the scene.
The police said initial investigations reveal that the fight might have happened over a girl.
Yes, that same girl who was spotted running through the fight.
During a massive manhunt that took place from 10 to 12 May, the police managed to arrest 9 other suspects involved in the fight.
They had appealed for information on the last two suspects then.
Well, turns out, they managed to catch ’em all.
The Last Suspect in 10 May’s ‘The Purge’ Arrested; Man Who Hid Him Also Arrested
According to Todayonline, the last suspect involved in the brawl was (finally) arrested on 15 May 2020.
The police revealed that the suspect, Muhammad Syukri Muhammad Iskandar, will be charged in court on 20 May for rioting with deadly weapons.
He will be kept at the Central Police Division while investigations are ongoing.
If guilty, he could be jailed up to ten years and caned.
Not The Only One
And turns out, he wasn’t the only one arrested.
A 45-year-old man who was hiding him from the police was also arrested on the same day for harbouring a fugitive.
According to the SPF, “harbouring a fugitive” is a serious offence which might result in imprisonment and fines.
Besides that, both of them will also be charged for breaking the safe distancing measures under the Covid-19 (Temporary Measures) (Control Order) Regulations 2020.
So if your best friend were to beg you to let him stay until things die down, don’t.
Because as SPF has shown many, many times, you can run but you can’t hide.
The other nine suspects are also being investigated for three other charges:
- being members of an unlawful society
- unlawful assembly
- and rioting armed with deadly weapons
For being members of an unlawful society, they can be jailed up to three years, fined, or both.
For unlawful assembly, they can be jailed up to two years, fined, or both.
As for rioting with deadly weapons, they can be jailed for up to 10 years and caned.
One of them will also be investigated for hiding two other suspects from the police.
And because it’s impossible to fight with a 1-metre safe distance, they are also being investigated for breaching safe distancing measures.
