Car destroyed, Bruce Lee-style


An ex-convict showed his fist of fury when he destroyed his elder sister's car using a pair of nunchakus at her house in Kulim, Kedah.

Following the Monday evening incident, police reportedly arrested the 49-year-old man a day later in Bukit Mertajam.

According to the New Straits Times Online, Kulim district police chief Superintendent Ahmad Nasir Jaafar said that the suspect went to his sister's house at 7.40pm Monday before flying into a rage.

"The 60-year-old woman, upon seeing her brother’s behaviour, proceeded to lock the door to prevent a fight breaking out between him and her husband.

"The man became even more enraged and proceeded to destroy the woman’s possessions. He also smashed the woman’s car, a Proton Waja, using a pair of wooden nunchakus," the news portal quoted Ahmad Nasir as saying.

No details were given as to the cause of the man's rage.

He said police checks revealed that the man has a criminal record for attempted murder and drug-related case.

However, Ahmad Nasir, added, the man did not admit to police that he was involved in the incident at his sister's home.

The case is being investigated under Section 506 and 427 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation and mischief by causing damage.

The nunchaku is a martial art weapon that consists of two sticks that are connected using a rope or chain. It was one of the weapons famously associated with legendary martial artist and actor Bruce Lee.
