Police Deny Barring Woman From Entering Police Station

KUALA LUMPUR  -- Police have brushed off allegations that a woman was denied from entering a police station as is being circulated on social media.

Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Seri Mazlan Lazim said police stations were always open to the public in the event of emergency.

He was commenting a six-minute and 28-second video clip of a 41-year-old woman who claimed that the police did not allow her to enter the Alam Damai police station after her car was trailed by another.

In fact, Mazlan said police detained three teenage boys for allegedly threatening the woman at 8.30 pm yesterday.

He said in the 11 pm incident, the woman had just fetched her son from a tuition centre in Alam Damai and was said to have been driving in a dangerous manner to the point of affecting other motorists.

“Subsequently, three men in a BMW who had been trailing the woman's car, and were unhappy over the matter screamed at the woman,” he told a press conference at the Alam Damai police station here tonight.

He said as such, the woman drove towards the entrance of the police station as she felt threatened and scared.

Mazlan said the policeman on duty rushed to the woman to find out what was happening but the BMW had already left the area by then.

“When the policeman asked her, the woman tried to explain but it was unclear as the victim had only drawn the window down halfway,” he added.
