Mechanic fined RM3,500 for hitting customer with a vape


KUALA LUMPUR (26/01/2017) : For losing his cool and hitting a customer, the magistrate’s court here slapped a mechanic with a RM3,500 fine for injuring the victim. Loke Wai Loong, 31, who stood outside the accused’s dock, was sentenced after he pleaded guilty to committing the offence before magistrate Mahyudin Md Som today.

Mahyudin ordered for the accused to serve four months in jail if he fails to pay the fine. Loke admitted to have intentionally hurt body guard Zulfakar Mansor, 46, with a vape, which left the victim with five stitches on his forehead. 

The offence was committed the at a car workshop in Jalan Gasing Indah here at about 12.30pm on Dec 10, last year In pleading leniency, Loke’s lawyer Sharen Rosli said his client was remorseful of his action. 

“He lost his temper at that time leading him to hit the victim. He admits that what he did was wrong and that he had acted irrationally. He regrets it,” he said. Sharen pleaded for a minimum fine be imposed saying that his client who just got married had to take care of his parents who are both in their 60s and his three-month-pregnant wife. 

“I plead for a low amount as he is the breadwinner of his family,” Sharen said, adding that Loke was a first offender. Deputy public prosecutor Nur Farah Adilah Noordin prosecuted. According to the facts of the case, the victim went to the accused’s workshop to change the oil in his car.

The accused denied the victim’s request saying that he was busy after finding out that the victim had bought the oil from another shop. The accused had asked the victim to go to another shop. 

This led to both parties trading insults before the victim was attacked by the accused and two other men with a wrench. One of the attackers hit the victim’s head with a vape injuring his forehead.
