Police are looking for a man who brandished a “weapon” during the recent Anime Fest at Paradigm Mall.
It is unknown if the gun is real or a prop.
Petaling Jaya District Police Chief Deputy Commissioner Mohamad Fakhruddin Abdul Hamid said the video was taken around 5:30 p.m. on May 17.
According to him, the man was a cosplayer at the event. It seems that he cosplays the character Big Smoke from the video game Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, who is part of the Ballas gang and therefore carries weapons in the game.
“The incident happened during an anime festival in Petaling Jaya which was held from last Friday to Monday.”
“Police are looking for the man and the matter is being investigated in accordance with Section 233 of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Act,” he said in a statement yesterday.
He also said police are looking for the individual who uploaded the video to help with the investigation.
Despite the guidelines set out by the organizers, attendees also reported instances of harassment and inappropriate behavior.
