The man who dressed up as a suicide bomber for a Halloween party at Armanee Terrace recently has given himself up to the police.
Petaling Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohd Zani Che Din said the man was detained at the district police headquarters on Nov 10, The Star Online reported.
“He will be remanded on Saturday.
“We are acting on a police report lodged over the Oct 28 incident,” Asst Comm Mohd Zani was quoted as saying.
He added the case has been classified under Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation.
It was reported that a man had alarmed residents of the apartment where he is believed to also be a resident, after he was seen dressed up as a suicide bomber, apparently for a Halloween costume party.
“At about 7.40pm on Oct 28, residents at an apartment in Damansara Perdana came across the man who was dressed as a suicide bomber.
“It was for a Halloween party and he was spotted riding the lift,” ACP Mohd Zani had said.
It was reported that the man, believed to be a 35-year-old Yemeni, was clad in a robe and chequered head-scarf with ‘explosives’ made out of cardboard and empty mineral water bottles wrapped around his waist.
The menacing outfit gave residents a scare and they lodged a police report.
