A schoolboy beat up a businessman with the help of a gang member after the man reported about the youngster's truancy to his school, China Press reported.
The duo assaulted the businessman at 11.15am on April 19 at a commercial complex in Taman Melawati, Selangor after beating up his son at another spot.
The businessman and two others sustained injuries. Police arrested the culprits when they tried to flee.
Apparently, the businessman had spotted the student loitering at the complex in his uniform during school hours and scolded him.
Wangsa Maju OCPD Supt Mohamad Roy Suhaimi Sarif confirmed the case.
A mother went down on her knees to beg a lawyer not to withdraw from representing her son, who was charged in a Penang court with possessing dangerous weapons.
Tan Huat Hock's mother broke down in tears after being told that S. Rethinakumar did not want to represent her son as he could not get a clear directive from the youngster.
