People often do stupid things for love, but when their love was rejected, they could do madder things.
Last Sunday (5 December), a man has set fire to a woman’s car after she had rejected his feelings for her.
The 29 year-old man, who felt jilted, made his way to the woman’s apartment in Taman Bukit Serdang, Kuala Lumpur and poured oil on her car before setting it on fire with a lighter.
According to Utusan, the incident took place around 5.20 a.m. and caused the other car that was parked beside the targeted car to be destroyed along with the fire.
Serdang district police chief A A Anbalagan said a neighbour notice the flames alerted the woman.
By the time she got downstairs, the firemen managed to put out the fire.
Anbalagan said based on the investigations and CCTV recordings, the police manage to nab the suspect at Bandar Kinrara, Puchong on the same day.
“From the investigations, the suspect is said have set the victim’s car on fire because he was not satisfied after his love was rejected about a year ago.”
The suspect has no past criminal records and tested negative for drugs in a urine test.
He will be remanded for 5 days until Friday and the case is investigated under Section 435 of the Penal Code.
