A viral video on social media showed a man in a Parsarana uniform assaulting a civilian at a convenience store on Tuesday (March 29).
The We are Malaysians Facebook page showcased the videos on their profile, sharing that the staff member shouldn’t have beat the man as he had only taken 2 instant noodle cups from the store out of hunger and allegedly without paying.
They wrote, “He was just hungry and ate 2 cups of instant noodles and don’t have money to pay, it’s not stealing. There’s no need for the Prasarana (Rapid Bus) staff to beat him, just sending him to the police is enough.”
In one of the videos, the Prasarana staff member can be seen questioning the man and slapping him repeatedly while in a second video, a Prasarana auxiliary police officer demanded that the man to pay for the 2 instant noodle cups.
Throughout the man’s interaction with the 2 staff members, he appeared incoherent with his words.
