Although receiving your meal super later whilst dining out can be incredibly frustrating, especially when you’re hungry, it is never an excuse to start a fight.
However, two men have recently been arrested by the police as suspects in the beating up of 2 eatery workers after their orders were delivered late in an incident at Jalan Perhentian Haji Salleh.
According to Sentul police chief Assistant Commissioner Ahmad Sukarno Mohd Zahari, the men had scolded and hit the two workers using a broom after a food order was not prepared immediately at about 6 am when the eatery had just opened.
“Since the stall had just opened, a female employee told them that their order could not be made immediately, causing the suspect to swear at her.”
Meanwhile, one of the men returned with a friend at 8:30 am, scolded the workers again, and started to destroy the equipment at the eatery, causing losses of around RM12,000.
“Acting on a MERS 999 call, the police dispatched a team to the location, and the two suspects were caught at a nearby stall,” he said in a statement, adding that the police also seized a baton and a helmet believed to have been used in the assault.
Checks by the police revealed that one of the suspects had 9 prior criminal records, however, at the time of the incident, it was believed that the two suspects had been intoxicated.
Following the incident, the suspects would be remanded to court to facilitate investigations under Sections 324 and 427 of the Penal Code.
Videos of the incident had also gone viral, where the reckless actions of the two men could be clearly seen.
