JOHOR BARU – Swift justice.
An auditor with the audacity to video record a woman’s buttocks at a shopping complex here last night, got more than he bargained for when he raised the ire of the public who gave him a sound thrashing.
In the incident about 9.40pm, a girlfriend of the woman, in her 20s, caught the man red-handed using a cellphone camera and told him off.
At that juncture, the man fled, only to be caught by shoppers and beaten up, resulting in face and head injuries.
The 27-year-old suspect was handed over to the police to facilitate investigations and taken to the Sultanah Aminah Hospital here for treatment.
Johor Baru Selatan police chief ACP Sulaiman Salleh lauded the public cooperation in detaining the auditor.
However, he advised the public against resorting to violence when detaining a suspect.
