Seven students nabbed over brawl

9th November, 2018

By JAMES LEONG

SANDAKAN: The cops here picked up seven teenagers in connection with a student brawl at a public park near Jalan Pantai (Coastal Road) near town on Wednesday.

The teenagers who are students, aged 15 to 16, were rounded up from the respective schools by the police on Thursday.

OCPD ACP Mohd Azhar Hamin said police are investigating the case under Section 148 of the Penal Code.

In the incident at about 4pm, one student aged 15, sustained injuries to his forehead and cheekbone after he was assaulted with a belt by a member from the other group, Mohd Azhar said.

The injured teenager and fourteen students from two schools had gathered at Taman Tun Razak to discuss with 20 students from another school on an earlier fight that happened in Singapore Road on Oct 30.

He and his friends were walking away after the discussion when they were chased by the group of 20 students. A member of the opposing group cornered him and used a belt to attack him, he said.

The injured teenager accompanied by his family later lodged a police report on the incident.

To avoid a recurrence of such incidents in the future, Mohd Azhar advised members of the public to immediately notify police if they see large group of students gathering at public places.

Mohd Azhar also reminded parents to check or make it a point to know the whereabouts of their children after their school hours to prevent them from indulging in activities that could get them into trouble with the law.
