In a statement today reported by Sinar Harian, Sepang District Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner Wan Kamarul Azran Wan Yusof said, the police have received a report from the manager of a restaurant regarding the incident and have managed to arrest three suspects aged 50 to 51 at two separate locations.
The initial investigation found that the three suspects had gone to the restaurant and when they were in the nasi kandar section, one of the suspects had used his finger to take a side dish while drunk.

Additionally, Wan Kamarul Azran noted that following the incident, the victim claimed to have bruises on his neck, head, left shoulder and ear as a result of being beaten by the suspect.

Meanwhile, Twitter user @amuse_gueule suggested that restaurants should place signs not allowing drunk people in.
Next time restaurants letak sign lah, Drunks are not allowed in. But you know, restaurants love drunks, because they can really eat after a full night of drinking.@amuse_gueule via Twitter
