Wednesday, 27 September 2017 : The teenager who was caught slapping his mother in a viral video did it for just RM2.
Ampang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Hamzah Alias said that the teen asked his mother for RM2 but lost his temper when his mother refused.
He then tried to grab RM17 from her before becoming violent.
The teen was seen repeatedly hitting his mother in a 40-second clip that went viral on social media.
It is learnt that another family member shot the video.
The report was made as the family was worried for the boy’s safety after the video went viral.
“We have taken statements from everyone involved and the parent of the boy do not want to press charges against him.
“A urine test of the teen also came back negative for drugs,” he said.
He added that the family claimed that this was the first time such an incident occurred but police are still investigating the case under Section 323 of the Penal Code for voluntarily causing hurt, which carries a maximum.
