KUALA LUMPUR - When a boy confronted another for dating his 14-year-old sister, all hell can break loose.

At the Wangsa Maju mall in Setapak on Monday night, two groups of teenagers clashed over the forbidden love affair leaving at least five of them injured.

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

The furious brother then brought several friends to the mall and confronted the couple and the fight broke out.

A staff at the mall said the fight on the ground floor took place after two groups of about 40 youths came from the upper floors.

She said the two groups were using sticks and helmets to hit each other. A chair belonging a shop on the ground floor of the mall and the security office were also damaged in the fight.

Wangsa Maju OCPD Supt Mohd Roy Suhaimi Sarif said the fight was over a "love affair" and nothing to do with rioting as circulated on social media.

Supt Mohd Roy said a report police had already been lodged on the incident and police would arrest those involved.

He said the injured were now in hospital receiving treatment. At least 11 suspects, aged 15 to 29, have been arrested.
