KUALA LUMPUR: Three policemen, who were investigating a fighting incident along the happening stretch of Jalan Telawi 3 in Bangsar here, were assaulted by a group of men, early this morning.
In the 4.30am incident, the trio were investigating an incident where six party-goers, who had just left Echo Club, were assaulted by a gang of eight men.
A police source said the gang members were drunk and one of them had pointed a gun at the victims. They fled the scene and lodged a police report.
When the three policemen came to inspect the scene, an unknown man appeared from the Echo Club and shouted at the police, asking them “What’s your problem?”.
Then about eight to 10 men armed with wooden sticks and bottles came out from the club and assaulted the trio.
One of the attackers allegedly shouted, "”How dare you disturb Gang 36?”.
One of the policemen shouted “Police” but to no avail as the men continued to attack the trio.
The men eventually fled when one of the policemen whipped out his gun.
One of the officers sustained serious injury and received 30 stitches on his head at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital. Another was reported to be in a stable condition and was discharged.
The source said police are still in the midst of investigating the case.
