A 3-minute video showing a female security guard slapping a middle-aged woman has gone viral on the interwebs.
The fiasco allegedly took place in Pearl Avenue, a condominium residence situated at Kajang. A Facebook user who claimed that she was the original uploader of the video has further explained the situation in the video.
According to the uploader, the middle aged woman, who knocked over a cone and parked her car in a no-parking zone, started making a scene when the security guard reprimanded her over the issue. The former claimed that she had the “privilege” to park in that area, and even uttered racist and vulgar remarks directed to the security guard. The eye witness said that the woman even told the guard to stop putting her “finger on my face”, though the woman was the one who started the shouting and gesturing.
Things got heated up between the 2 parties as the woman took a move forward to slap the security guard. However, she missed, which resulted in the security guard retaliating with another slap on the woman’s face.
“Apa you mau? You mau apa? Jaga sikit mulut you! (What do you want? What do you want? Watch your mouth!),” the guard was heard shouting.
After the slap, a man in blue was seen to be intervening, acting as the mediator between the 2 parties. The conversation in the video wasn’t clear but another man, believed to be the husband of the woman, looked agitated as well and was seen to be giving the security guard a stern warning.
The video was first uploaded at 11pm on 22nd June and has since been re-uploaded on the “Wartawan Jalanan” Facebook page with the title “pergaduhan Aunty VS Security Guard”. The original video has amassed more than 8,000 views while the re-uploaded version has around 12,000 views as of press time.
Majority of the people on social media have tasked themselves to commend on the actions of the security guard and condemn the woman’s unduly behaviour. While some of them commented that the woman “deserved it”, others stated that no matter how extreme the woman’s actions were, the security guard crossed the line when she resorted to physical actions.
On a separate note, this is the not the first case regarding the security in the condominium. On 13th October 2014, a resident posted a complaint on Pearl Avenue’s Facebook page, highlighting the problems with the condominium’s security. According to the resident, her foreign tenant was wrongly blamed by the security guards for causing disturbances in the area. The tenant was also “treated like a convict” and the management of the condominium even went so far as to instruct the resident to “chase (the tenant) out”. When asked for prove and an explanation, no satisfactory answer was given and the issue was soon swept under the carpet.
The offense wasn’t disclosed in the post, until another resident left the following question in the comments section, “Are you referring to the case thrown down the bottles from high floor into the swimming pool?” To this, the original poster answered in the affirmative.
