Gentleman’s moto gets not-so-gentle treatment

Gentleman’s moto gets not-so-gentle treatment

Romantic jealousy was allegedly the cause of gang harassment when a man and his friends were chased by five weapon-wielding motorists after dropping a friend (the girlfriend of one angry rider) off at home after a party in the capital on Sunday.

Police say that when the shindig let out, the 20-year-old and seven of his friends, riding five motos, brought the girl home before being followed by the crew who had sticks and swords. When all of his friends managed to escape, the man abandoned his bike and fled on foot to report to police.

Upon returning to his now-damaged ride, villagers said his chivalry was to blame so he filed for compensation.
