KUALA LUMPUR - Another 10 suspects have been arrested in connection with a clash between two groups of teenagers at Wangsa Maju Mall in Setapak.

The fight occurred after a teenager confronted another boy for dating his 14-year-old sister.

It is learnt the boy had gone out for a date with the girl without her brother's permission.

The furious brother brought several friends to the mall and confronted the couple, which led to a fight.

Wangsa Maju OCPD Supt Mohd Roy Suhaimi Sarif said another 10 people had been arrested so far, adding that a total of 21 youths had been remanded until July 24.

"We have classified the case as rioting with weapons," he said.

It was reported that at least five people were injured following the clash.

A worker at the mall who declined to be named said the fight on the ground floor took place between two groups of about 40 youths.
