The internet community has been going nuts over a video that made its way online last night (Wednesday, 10th March). It showed a man causing a scene in public, with his private part exposed!
As revealed by Facebook page Info Roadblock JPJ/Polis, the taunting incident reportedly happened at a mobile phone shop nearby the Pantai Timor Shopping Centre in Jalan Pintu Pong, Kota Bharu, Kelantan.
In the 1-minute and 17-second long CCTV footage posted by the page, the man in the orange-coloured T-shirt could be seen harassing the female staff on duty by conducting the indecent act. Additionally, one of the workers was also spotted making a call to report the incident; that apparently angered the man.
Things got out of control when the man attempted to attack the ladies. Luckily enough, the 3 of them managed to escape and left the shop immediately. The video then ended with the man jumping off the shop desk to leave the premise. At the time of writing (Thursday, 11th March), the post has received over 298k views on Facebook.
Scrolling through the comments, some of them have called for the store owner to further improve the security control at the premise so that such incidents will not occur again. Some even suggested for the workers to store protective weapons such as a large-sized pepper spray, a baseball bat, a steering lock and even an insecticide spray underneath the counter in case similar emergency situations occurred.

So far, the local authorities have yet to provide any updates regarding the case.
Update (Friday, 12th March):
Police have arrested the alleged sexual offender after the team received a call from one of the saleswomen. According to Kelantan Criminal Investigations Department chief, Assistant Commissioner Wan Khairuddin Wan Idris, the female victim claimed that the man didn’t put his trousers on when he came to the shop. He was holding his private parts when he entered, which prompted the horrified staff to flee and call the police.

Wan Khairuddin added by revealing that the police arrived at the scene and arrested the half-nude man around 10 minutes after the incident took place. “The suspect’s mother informed the police that her child has been suffering from mental illness and depression for a long time. He has been receiving treatment and was just released from the ward a week earlier,” he said. The police then sent the suspect to the Raja Perempuan Zainab II Hospital for an evaluation.
As reported by NST, the case is being investigated under Section 509 of the Penal Code for intending to insult the modesty of another person.
