A suspect has been named in an assault case involving a teenager on the Jagorawi toll road in East Jakarta.

The man, identified as MA, reportedly admitted to hitting 14-year-old RA, one of the passengers of a car that suddenly stopped in front of his own on Wednesday.

“[MA has been named] a suspect,” Jakarta Police general crimes director Nico Afinta said as quoted by kompas.com on Friday.

Police denied MA was driving a military car during the incident. “We have identified [the car]. That is not a military registered plate. It is a general public plate number,” Jakarta road patrol unit head Adj. Sr. Comr. Slamet Widodo said.

Reza Achmad, RA’s brother, posted a video on social media showing his brother’s bloody nose as well as the alleged perpetrator’s face and license plate of the latter’s car, which shows a military sticker.

 

Video remaja 14 tahun yang dipukul sopir mobil berstiker 'TNI' hingga berdarah-darah viral di media sosial. Kejadian itu berlangsung di Tol Jagorawi, dari Cibubur arah Jakarta, Rabu (22/8) sekitar pukul 10.00 WIB. . Semua itu berawal ketika sang bocah bernama Rayhan, sedang bepergian dengan mobil bersama sang kakak, Reza. Reza yang mengaku berprofesi sebagai dokter muda, bercerita tentang kejadian tidak mengenakkan tersebut. . "Saat itu jalan tol agak padat. Pengemudi sedan (saya) melakukan rem sedikit mendadak karena mobil di depan saya juga ngerem mendadak. Persis di belakang mobil saya ada mobil Captiva hitam dengan pelat B 1207 TGZ. Saya tidak tahu dia emosi atau bagaimana, setelah bayar tol mobil tersebut memblock mobil saya dengan menghalangi dari jalur tengah. Saya di jalur paling kanan. Tindakan ini hampir menyebabkan saya ditabrak mobil di belakang saya. Sopir Captive tersebut langsung turun dari mobil dan saya buka jendela. Spontan dia mencekik leher saya dan adik saya yang baru lulus dari bangku SMP yang turun dari pintu belakang dan saat itu juga oknum tersebut memukul adik saya tepat di mukanya," Tulis Reza. . Dikonfirmasi Kapuspen TNI Mayjen Sabrar Fadhilah yang kami lansir dari Detikcom, pemilik mobil tersebut diketahui bukanlah anggota TNI, melainkan sipil. "Pemilik mobil itu orang sipil, bukan TNI. Pakai-pakai stiker TNI bertindak arogan," kata Sabrar

The incident occurred when Reza, with his mother and brother, were driving along the Jagorawi toll road from Bogor in West Java to Jakarta when the car in front of him made a sudden stop. Reza and the driver of a Chevrolet Captiva behind him hit their brakes to avoid a collision.  

The Chevrolet’s driver, MA, blocked Reza’s car and ordered the latter to get out of the car. MA choked Reza, while scolding him for slamming his brakes. He also proceeded to beat Reza’s brother, RA. (stu/gis)
