A wedding turned into a nightmare when a group of men created havoc, destroying a superbike, tearing the groom’s clothes and stealing cash gifts.
A video of a group of men raising a ruckus at a wedding in Gombak last Saturday has gone viral.
In the footage, the men are seen behaving in an unruly manner outside a community hall as the groom and others try to talk to them.
Multiple police reports were made over the incident, which is said to have occurred at 1pm, when the men barged into the Taman Melati Gombak community hall, where the wedding was taking place, the New Straits Times reported.
According to police, the bridegroom said the men had accused him and his friends of making a din with their motorcycles.
“The men then threw firecrackers into the hall and barged into the hall with a parang,” the groom was quoted as saying.
The rowdy group had also allegedly torn the groom’s clothes and even stolen the cash gifts from the guests, before destroying a Honda superbike which had been rented for the big day.
Wangsa Maju deputy district police chief DSP Ramli Kasa said the incident involved 20 people.
A 32-year-old man was arrested on the day of the incident itself. Six other suspects, aged between 30 and 40, were arrested yesterday and today.
Police said they have identified five more suspects and will pick them up today.
The men, said to be residents of the People’s Housing Project (PPR) in Gombak Setia, Setapak, will be investigated under Section 148 of the Penal Code for possessing weapons during a riot.
