On Facebook, there are many who applauded the driver's decision, but also many who disagreed. 

"Wake up, reality is not GTA," wrote one, referring to violent racing game Grand Theft Auto. 

"A helmet can't break a car, this lady driver is wrong ...." wrote another.

"You want to become a murderer just because a motorcyclist hit your car with helmet? What she should do is to call the police, not ram him like that and run away."

George Town OCPD Asst Comm Mior Faridalathrash Wahid said the pair in the car, a 46-year-old insurance agent and his wife, drove to the police station to lodge a report. 

The suspect has been identified.

“I do not reject the possibility that the suspect had the intention to rob the couple,” he added.

The case is being investigated as criminal intimidation and committing mischief.
