A member of the Malaysian Armed Forces (ATM) was arrested after a viral video allegedly showing him sexually harassing a female employee at a local vape shop in Taman Keramat, Selangor circulated online.

The clip had apparently captured a man wearing a private’s uniform holding on to the woman’s hand and pressing his mouth against her fingers while smoking on a vaporizer.

Social media comments reveal that netizens were generally disturbed and disgusted by the behaviour shown in the video.

While some had argued that the woman seen in the video had just sat there and did nothing, others came to her defence and implied how difficult and even dangerous it can be for women to fight back against their assaulters.

Police had also confiscated the man’s uniform and equipment that he wore during the viral incident and found that the suspect urine samples were clear of drugs.
