Man shot with taser, arrested after slashing brother's arm

SUNGAI SIPUT: A 40-year-old mentally unsound man was arrested after slashing his brother's arm with a machete at their home in Kampung Muhibbah Fasa 2B here.
Sungai Siput OCPD Superintendent Abd Fatah Abd Rahman said the man
had slashed his 43-year-old brother's left arm and also threatened to hurt their mother during the Sunday noon incident.
"A team of policemen led by Insp Wan Mohd Zakirudin Arifin arrived at the scene to find the man standing in front of his house with a 0.4m-long machete," said Supt Abdul Fatah.
He added that policemen at the scene tried unsuccessfully for an hour to get the suspect to surrender.
"We also warned him three times that we would shoot him with a taser before he tried to attack the policemen," he said.
Supt Abd Fatah said a policeman then fired the taser gun at the suspect from a 5m distance and subdued him.
"The man was slightly hurt as he fell after he was tasered. He has received treatment at the Sungai Siput Hospital here and will be sent to Hospital Bahagia Ulu Kinta in Tanjung Rambutan for observation," said Supt Abdul Fatah.
