The Borneo Post reported that more than 20 Mat Rempits swarmed a Proton Waja and assaulted its driver after the vehicle was involved in a minor accident with one of the motorcyclists at Jalan Merbau in Miri last Friday night.

The victim, in his 40s, was injured on his face and mouth after the attack in front of a hotel at Jalan Merbau ended when the police showed up at the scene.

According to the report, the man and his four passengers were on their way home to Lutong after attending a wedding reception at local hotel before his car grazed one of the motorcyclists.

The angry motorcyclists then gave chase to the car before overtaking and blocking it with some climbing on its roof and hood while others smashed the windscreen with helmets.
