A restaurant worker at an eatery was seen in a video being attacked by two men whom he had asked to queue up.
The incident happened on Thursday night (16 march) at an eatery located in Glomac Cyberjaya, Selangor, according to The Star.
The Sepang district police chief, ACP Wan Kamarul Azran Wan Yusof, said in a statement to the media on 17 March that the suspects had visited the restaurant to eat.
The first two suspects were at the nasi kandar section of the restaurant while a third suspect, who was drunk, used his hand to pick his food.
A restaurant worker then asked the suspects to stop what they were doing and to queue up and wait for their turn as there were other customers.
Upset at this, the suspects then started becoming aggressive and attacked the staff.
A video emerged online showing the assault, with a man wearing a blue shirt holding onto the staff member and trying to punch him, as the latter tried to pull away from his assailant.
Another man wearing a red hat then walked towards the victim armed with a pair of metal tongs and tried to stab him in the back with it, but failed because the tongs were not sharp enough.
The blue-shirt guy then continued punching the victim while the red-hat guy picked up the plates on the counter and threw it at the victim.
At the time of the assault, there were about 17 other restaurant workers on duty, with some of them stepping forward and trying to stop the attack.
Two of the workers suffered injuries to their heads and shoulders, with several plates also being broken in the assault.
ACP Wan Kamarul Azran also added that they have arrested 3 suspects, two 51-year-old men and another 50-year-old man, with two of them having previous drug and criminal charges on their records.
The suspects have since confessed to the attack, as police investigations continue.
