An employee at a convenience store in Klang was slapped by a customer in the face, just because the former hastily placed his partner’s purchased items in the plastic bag.
Kosmo reported that the wife got angry at the cashier, before complaining about the incident to her husband who was outside. Out of anger, the husband entered the shop and started arguing with the employee, before smacking her left cheek.
The CCTV footage of the commotion has since gone viral online. The victim, Nor Ain Shafinaz Nor Azmi told the news outlet that the incident took place when the supermarket was in the process of closing its daily operations, and explained that she was rushing at the time. Several other customers were also waiting in line to make their purchase transaction.
“After a few minutes, the woman’s husband came in and yelled at me. He told me to quit if I’m not sincere in doing this job. The man then slapped my left cheek, and the incident was witnessed by other customers,” the 5 months pregnant mother told the publication.
Following that, Nor Ain Shafinaz then lodged a police report at the Bukit Raja Police Station at about 11:30pm. “The report was made out of concern about my safety, in case the man seeks revenge on me again in the future,” the 24-year-old lady explained.
North Klang District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Nurulhuda Mohd Salleh revealed that the 38-year-old man was arrested at his house. Investigations found that the suspect works as an ice truck driver. He also has four previous records involving criminal and drug cases.
The man has since been released on police bail and the case is being investigated under Section 323/506 of the Penal Code.
