KUALA LUMPUR: Police have arrested a 32-year-old woman who was allegedly caught on video stripping her clothes at Petaling Street.

The video, which was taken down a few hours after being uploaded on YouTube, had caused a stir on social media.

Dang Wangi OCPD  Asst Comm Zainol Samah confirmed that the suspect, who is from Sabah, was arrested in a hotel in Jalan Sultan at about 5.30am Saturday.

"Initial information from the public was that she could be Iranian but it is not true. She is a Malaysian from Sabah," he said adding that police would conduct a urine test to ascertain if she was on drugs.

It was reported that the woman stripped off her clothes to avoid paying for a meal worth around RM18 in Petaling Street here.

The woman had gone to the chicken rice restaurant with a man, described by witnesses as Caucasian, on Thursday evening.

Witnesses said the woman’s companion had gotten into a scuffle with the restaurant operator when she was not allowed to leave.

The duo reportedly fled when policemen arrived at the scene.
