A video emerged online showing a FoodPanda delivery rider coming to blows and fighting with 2 men at a restaurant in Penang.
The fight allegedly occurred on 14 March and had broken out because the delivery rider had allegedly insulted a female worker at the restaurant.
The Penang Southwest Police District confirmed the fight and said that the three men who were fighting in the video are assisting them with their investigations.
In the video, two men could be seen raining blows on the delivery rider, who was wearing his pink and grey FoodPanda delivery rider uniform.
The two men had picked up the restaurant’s chairs around them and swung them at the rider, at one point hitting him in the face.
The rider managed to wrestle the chairs away from them, before returning punches at them and trying to fight both of them at once.
Several onlookers tried to stop the fight, but only managed to take off the shirt of one of the men instead.
The FoodPanda rider then tried to take the initiative and go on the offensive, attacking the shirtless man and exchanging punches.
The group was eventually separated and the food delivery rider then sat down on the ground and started filming a video of the men.
One of the men then walked away to avoid being recorded as the rider continued to follow and film him.
Insulted a female staff
According to Sin Chew Daily, witnesses at the scene claimed that the delivery rider had insulted the female staff working at the restaurant, prompting the two men to come forward to defend her.
The fight took place at a restaurant located in the Southwest District of Penant.
The Penang police also added that they have arrested all 3 of the men, between the ages of 44 and 68 in connection with the fight, and are investigating.
