A local woman was arrested by the police for threatening her ex-boyfriend and crashing her car into the automatic gate of his family residence on Sunday (14 August).
The incident was reported to have taken place in Taman Perling, Johor Bahru on 14 August at about 5.00 am.
In a statement, Johor Bahru Utara district deputy police chief Supt Fariz Ammar Abdullah said the 20-year-old woman was arrested at the Plaza Toll Lima Kedai, Gelang Patah on 15 August.
This came after her ex-boyfriend’s sister lodged a police report over the matter.
Fariz Ammar said one of the ex-boyfriend’s relatives had allegedly received a threat from the woman, where she threatened to set fire to the family’s business premise and damage their property.
“With this information, a police team was sent to went to the complainant’s family home and found a Toyota Corolla Altis car driven by the woman had crashed into the automatic gate until it was dislodged before fleeing the scene.” Fariz Ammar said.
“However, police managed to arrest the woman after tailing her.”
Meanwhile, he revealed that the police investigations found that she was in a relationship with the complainant’s younger brother before they broke up last month.
He added that the woman was also found to have sent a video showing an individual pouring a liquid believed to be petrol in front of the family’s motorcycle shop prior to the police report being made.
In addition, a closed circuit recording caught her ramming the automatic gate until she hit a car belonging to the complainant’s father, resulting in damages worth RM15,000.
Fariz Ammar said the woman had no previous record but the initial urine screening showed her positive for the banned drug benzo.
The case is being investigated under Section 506 and 427 of the Criminal Code.
In addition, the woman will be investigated under Section 15 (1) (a) of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.
