When it comes to committing vandalism, most would choose to do it discreetly or in the dead of night to minimise the chance of getting caught. However, this woman decided to cause some damage in front of an audience at a government building.
Recently, a woman was reported to have vandalised the signboard on the wall of the Bagan Jermal Fire and Rescue Station in Penang. In the video posted on Twitter, the woman in question can be seen destroying the signboard with a hammer.
A woman was reported to have trespassed and started vandalising a fire station in Penang.
According to MyNewsHub, the incident happened at around 11:45pm. The perpetrator was said to be in her 40s and was seen smashing the government building’s property as soon as she walked in. Fire personnel tried to stop the woman from causing more damage but their attempts to calm her down were unsuccessful.
In the video posted, the armed woman can also be heard yelling at a man, presumably a staff member, and screaming the names of two women, Habsah and Noraini. The man in the video then asked the other people around who the two women were. The Royal Malaysian Police (PDRM) were immediately dispatched to the scene and apprehended the disturbed woman.
The second video showed the suspect in handcuffs being confronted by police officers. It was said that a police report was filed at Pulau Tikus Police Station. Videos and photos of the incident went viral on social media with netizens wondering what could’ve provoked the woman to do such a thing. Some speculated she may be mentally disturbed while others were curious about the names of the women she shouted.
At the time of writing, neither the Bagan Jermal Fire and Rescue Station nor PDRM released a statement regarding the case so there’s currently no update as to why the woman started trespassing and vandalising the fire station.
