Assault threat leads to arrest

Date:

MIRI: A 39-year-old man turned to police for help after an acquaintance threatened to punch the lights out of him if he failed to repay his debt.

He told police the trouble was he did not owe anything to the 52-year-old suspect whom he had got to know in 2014 through their involvement in paintball.

He claimed he had received a call from the suspect at about 3pm on Sunday (Jan 16) during which he was asked to meet to settle the debt.

As things turned out they met  in front of a seafood restaurant in Pujut and the suspect threatened to assault him when he denied owing him any money.

Police chief ACP Hakemal Hawari said police apprehended the suspect that same day for questioning.

Investigations are continuing.
