Customer ran amok in restaurant after being called 'pak cik', say cops

SUBANG JAYA: He wasn’t called "baby" so he ran amok, with a four-year-old ending up one of the victims of his violent outburst.

The incident, believed to be in a restaurant in Putra Heights, has since gone viral on social media.

Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Wan Azlan Wan Mamat, in a statement on Tuesday (June 6), said the incident occurred on June 4.

"Investigations showed that the incident stemmed from a misunderstanding between a male worker and the suspect.

"The worker had called the suspect 'pak cik' but was told to address him as either 'abang' or 'baby'," he said.

However the worker ignored the request, and he continued to refer the suspect as "pak cik", leading to a meltdown when he passed him his food order.

Shouts and threats to damage the restaurant were uttered. In his rage, the suspect also threw his food packet and hot drink to the floor. The food and drink had also hit a four-year-old child there.

Several chairs and a table were thrown, which scared other patrons.

"Efforts to trace and nab the suspect are underway," he said.

He added that fortunately, the child was uninjured during the incident.
