VIDEO: Man Assaults Store Worker After Being Told To Wear a Mask

Covid-19 cases are rising once again which makes wearing our face masks and following the SOPs more pressing now than ever.

However, one man from Seremban apparently didn’t get the memo when he attacked a staff member at a convenience store for asking him to wear his face mask.

The video of the man causing a scene has since gone viral on social media.

Take a look:

According to Chief Police of Seremban ACP Mohd Said Ibrahim, the incident occurred at approximately 9:20am on 18 April.

The customer started yelling threats and even attempted to strangle the 22-year-old worker for telling him to wear a face mask and check his temperature at the door. The customer also failed to register his name at the book available at the front of the store.

The suspect has since been apprehended at 10pm for further investigation and has been fined for not adhering to SOPs.

His case will be investigated under Section 506 or the penal code Section 323 for voluntarily causing hurt.
