The incident occurred around 7pm on April 28, in the SS2/20 neighborhood of Petaling Jaya. The entire incident was captured by a nearby house’s CCTV camera and circulated on social media.
The footage shows a man wearing a black jacket and blue jeans following a woman holding an umbrella. He suddenly grabbed her from behind and held her in a vice-like grip.
