A woman was arrested by police for threatening her ex-boyfriend and ramming her car into the gate of his family home on Sunday (Aug 14).
Johor Bahru Utara district deputy police chief Supt Fariz Ammar Abdullah said police apprehended the 20-year-old woman at Lima Kedai Toll Plaza in Gelang Patah near Johor Bahru at around 6.30am.

Ex-boyfriend’s family terrorised
Fariz Ammar said one the ex-boyfriend’s relatives had allegedly received a threat from the woman, where she expressed her desire to set fire to the family’s business premise and damage their property.
“With this information, a police team was sent to went to the complainant’s family home and found a Toyota Corolla Altis car driven by the woman had crashed into the automatic gate until it was dislodged before fleeing the scene.
“However, police managed to arrest the woman after tailing her and our investigations found that she was in a relationship with the complainant’s younger brother before they broke up last month,“ he said in a statement.
He added that the woman had also sent a video showing an individual pouring a liquid believed to be petrol in front of the family’s motorcycle shop prior to the police report being made.
“On top of that, a closed circuit recording showed her ramming the automatic gate until she hit a car belonging to the complainant’s father, resulting in damages worth RM15,000.”
