CYBERJAYA witnessed a high-speed pursuit on Tuesday morning (5 December) involving up to 28 police patrol cars chasing a Perodua Bezza through the city streets. The chase, which originated in Petaling Jaya, ended with the arrests of a man and a woman, while two other male suspects managed to evade the authorities.
The pursuit unfolded when patrolling police noticed a Perodua Bezza, containing three men and a woman, driving around suspiciously.
As the police attempted to intercept the vehicle, the suspects started accelerating, prompting the police to initiate a high-speed chase.
A viral video captured the intensity of the pursuit, and revealed a convoy of approximately 28 police patrol vehicles racing through the streets, with supposedly 18 of them from Petaling Jaya leading the charge.
The pursuit ultimately led to Cyberjaya, where the suspects were apprehended. During the arrest, two of the male suspects escaped by jumping out of the speeding vehicle, while the remaining man and woman were detained.
Further inspection of the Perodua Bezza uncovered burglary tools, raising questions about the suspects' intentions.
Petaling Jaya District police chief, Assistant Commissioner Mohamad Fakhrudin Abdul Hamid, confirmed the incident to New Straits Times and the subsequent arrest of the suspects.
He assured that a media statement regarding the case would be issued.
Netizens equate it to a Grand Theft Auto chase
Social media buzzed with reactions to a video compiling all footage of the high-speed chase, with netizens sharing their thoughts on platforms like Twitter/X and Reddit.
