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

ACP Wan Azlan said that the encounter 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 to 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 packets of food and hot drink to the floor which also hit a four-year-old child in the shop.

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

A video of the incident went viral on June 4.
