Multiple staff came to the women's aid and threw the man off his wife.

As the man tried fending the staff member, he soon found himself outnumbered as more people got involved and was forcefully pushed out of the restaurant.

Other diners at the restaurant further assisted the staff and hauled the man outside of the store.

The man was later nabbed by police at 6pm after receiving a report.

Investigations revealed that a fight had broken out between the couple due to a misunderstanding. The woman did not suffer any injuries from the scuffle.

The case will be investigated under Section 323 of the Penal Code for causing voluntary hurt and carries a jail term of a year, a fine of RM2,000, or both if found guilty.
