A 24-year-old man in Cheras was beaten up by three others just because he was in a hurry and overtook their car, Harian Metro reported.
The victim was rushing to a petrol station, about 100m away, when the incident occurred at Taman Tenaga at around 2.30pm on Tuesday.
Police sources said the driver in the other car repeatedly hooted his horn and a pursuit started.
When the victim eventually stopped and got out of his car, the other three men quickly pounced on him.
"The victim fought back but could not ward off their attacks," the police source said, adding that later the man sought treatment at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital.
