KUALA LUMPUR: A man assaulted two of his bodyguards and pointed a gun at one of them, threatening to kill him.

The suspect, a 43-year-old man, was supposedly upset that his two bodyguards were fasting during Ramadan.

Dang Wangi OCPD Asst Comm Mohamad Zainal Abdullah said they received a report on the incident at 3.04am on Wednesday (April 14).

“The complainant, a 26-year-old bodyguard, claimed that he was with his colleague at a condominium on Jalan Pinang here when the suspect asked if they were fasting.

“When they responded that they were, he got angry and slapped the complainant,” he said when contacted on Wednesday.

He said the complainant and his colleague then followed the suspect to his house at Batu Nilam, Klang.

“The suspect then allegedly beat them with a cane.

“He then pointed a gun belonging to his colleague at the complainant and threatened to kill him,” he said, adding that police were now tracing the whereabouts of the suspect.

ACP Mohamad Zainal said they have classified the case as voluntarily causing hurt and criminal intimidation.

He said that the complainant had been working as a bodyguard for three years, while his colleague had been a bodyguard for over seven years.

“Our investigations revealed the suspect tried to force them not to fast,” he said.

He added that the complainant and his colleague suffered injuries to their backs and received treatment at the Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital at Klang.
