Police are investigating the case of an alleged motorcycle thief who died several days after being beaten up by a crowd.
The suspect was attacked by a group of people when he was spotted trying to wheel away a motorcycle which was parked in front of a shop in Jalan Bandar Baru Dalam here around 12.30pm on Sept 13.
Police said the owner noticed the man wheeling away the motorcycle and called out for help.
"Members of the public surrounded the man before beating him up. He was later handed over to the police with head injuries.".
The man was treated at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital for two days before he was charged on Thursday and released on bail. The man later complained about feeling ill when he was at home before being rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
