KUALA LUMPUR: Police have arrested the man who allegedly launched a foul-mouthed tirade at a nasi lemak seller and her customers at Taman Desa.
Brickfields Deputy OCPD Supt Basri Sagoni (pic) said the man was arrested at his house on Monday (July 19) night.
"He has been remanded until July 21 to help with further investigations," he said on Tuesday (July 20).

"We received a report from a 22-year-old woman after the man allegedly scolded and used foul language on her mother and a customer in front of her stall along Jalan Desa Bakti.
