Arab flies into a rage over couple’s kiss at lodge
By Muguntan Vanar in Kota Kinabalu/The Star | Asia News Network:
It was only a kiss, but an Arab visitor blew his top and attacked two women at a backpackers’ lodge here.
The man’s outrage was caught on video and posted on YouTube immediately after the 6.30pm incident on Feb 9.
Police are now looking for the suspect, who was seen on the video clip attacking receptionist Dewina Jolilin, 22, and moving towards another woman, said to be the local girlfriend of a Canadian traveller here.
City police chief Asst Comm Ahmad Sofi Zakaria said the receptionist had lodged a police report against the suspect, who was last seen leaving the lodge in a huff in a taxi.
Tourist Daniel Gunn, 30, who recorded the episode, said he had kissed his girlfriend on the cheek in the hall area and this infuriated the Arab man.
“I tried to calm him down but he got angrier,” said the Canadian.
