Singaporean jailed for attack on bus driver

JOHOR BARU - A 68-year-old Singaporean who reportedly attacked a Malaysian bus driver with a wooden stick was sentenced to 14 days in jail and RM6,000 (S$2248) fine by a magistrate's court here.

Yeo Ang Kwang was charged with causing injuries with a weapon on factory bus driver Tee Siew Wah near a petrol station along Jalan Tampoi here around 9am on March 7.

Yeo pleaded guilty to the charge after it was read out to him before magistrate Mohd Azlan Shah Mohd Allias yesterday.

In mitigation, the accused pleaded for a lighter sentence citing his age and that he did not possess a criminal record.

Mohd Azlan later sentenced Yeo to 14 days jail term and a fine of RM6,000 in default 12 months' imprisonment.

DPP Muhamad Taufik Saberi prosecuted. The accused was not represented by a lawyer.
