MIRI: A male teenager who tried to escape from a policeman from the Motorcycle Patrol Unit was detained after he allegedly punched the cop here yesterday.
Miri police chief ACP Khoo Leng Huat said the corporal was patrolling in Jalan Tudan with his colleague when he saw the 17-year-old riding a motorcycle in a suspicious manner at about 11pm.
“The victim ordered the suspect to stop but he sped off before he fell on the road after knocking over some traffic cones by the roadside when the policemen gave chase,” he said in a statement here today.
Khoo said the suspect then punched the policeman twice on his face after the teenager got angry when asked about his mobile phone and wallet.
The initial investigation revealed that the suspect did not have a driving licence and the motorcycle he was riding belonged to his sister.
