A man spilt scalding soup and swung his fists at a Caucasian man who allegedly groped his girlfriend's backside.
The incident happened at a foodcourt in AMK hub on Monday (March 5) at around 6pm, and both the man, 23 and the alleged molester, 62, were arrested by the police after the dispute.
According to Shin Min Daily News, during the time of the incident, the man’s girlfriend and the uncle were queueing at a chicken rice stall, when the uncle allegedly groped the woman’s backside.
Unbeknownst to him, the act was witnessed by the woman’s boyfriend who was standing at the back.

The uncle too flew into a rage at the sudden provocation, and the two got into a heated argument.
