A policeman on patrol was injured after being beaten by a group of men at the Taming Sari traffic light junction heading to Taman Desa Baiduri in Kajang yesterday.
In the 6.30am attack, the policeman and his partner were patrolling the area on motorcycles when they spotted 10 men in two parked cars, which were blocking the road.
Kajang district police chief ACP Willey Richard said the policeman was believed to have asked the drivers of the two cars to move their vehicles, which were causing traffic congestion.
"Dissatisfied with the policeman's instruction, the suspects came out and beat him. They also robbed the policeman of his bag, which contained a wallet and a mobile phone, before fleeing the scene," he said.
Willey said efforts to track down the suspects were being done and the case was being investigated under Section 395/397 of the Penal Code for gang robbery.
