Mass brawl breaks out at Bangsar's Jalan Telawi, 21 people arrested
A police patrol team at 3.30am came across a fight which had broken out in front of a banana leaf rice restaurant along the street.
As policemen moved in to intervene, a car reversed, almost colliding with the policemen.
The car then sped towards Jalan Ara and almost rammed into another police patrol car. Policemen fired off a shot towards the car. The shot struck the vehicle's front fender.
The driver fled and abandoned the car in front of the Maybank in Bangsar Baru and managed to escape.
Brickfields district police chief Assistant Commissioner Sharul Othman Mansor said upon checking the car, police found three motorcycle helmets, a metre-long rod, a knife, a baton and a bloodstained jacket inside.
Police seized two cars, including Toyota Vellfire and Perodua Myvi.
Sharul said 21 people, four of them women, have been arrested over their suspected involvement in the fight.
One of the men arrested was sent to the Universiti Malaya Medical Centre. He had sustained injuries from the brawl.
Sharul said police are in the midst of investigating the case.
The motive behind the fight has yet to be ascertained.
