PETALING JAYA: A 22-year-old woman, said to be a former national sportswoman, allegedly punched her GrabCar driver in the eye following an argument with the man.

The incident, believed to have occurred on Friday (Dec 1), started after the driver was delayed when picking up the woman and her mother from Sunway Pyramid for a trip to their home in SS6, Subang Jaya.

When they got on board, the two women voiced their displeasure and an argument ensued.

Another argument started after the driver took the duo to the wrong house, located on the same street as their intended destination.

However, the 22-year-old woman spotted this and in her anger, allegedly punched the driver in the right eye when trying to get him to stop.

The issue came to light after the driver wrote about his experience on social media.

Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohammad Azlin Sadari said that the police had met with both parties involved.

"Both sides lodged police reports and we have recorded their statements. We found that there was a misunderstanding and an argument which led to the injury.

"Following investigations, both sides were called in. After some discussion, both made peace and withdrew their reports," he said when contacted on Saturday.

He added that no investigation paper was opened over the incident.
