Fight between delivery rider and 2 men in Penang restaurant captured on video
The video, which lasts a minute and five seconds, shows two men hitting someone wearing what appears to be the foodpanda uniform.
The pair grabbed restaurant chairs and proceed hit the rider. However, the rider is able to wrestle the chair away from them.
He then begins to retaliate with his fists, attempting to fight both men.
Onlookers try to stop the men, but only succeed in taking the shirt off one of them.
The rider then goes on the offensive on the man who still has a shirt off, trading blows with him.
After being separated, the rider drops to the floor and picks up his mobile phone to record a video.
The man walks away, apparently in an attempt to avoid being recorded. The rider follows, still pointing his phone at him.
At least there’s no more fighting after that since the men have been separated.
