Where most customers would have shrugged it off and adhered to the policy, the man started raging at the cashier and hit the back of her head

He then said, "Lu jaga (you better watch out)" before leaving the store empty-handed. 

"As a result of the incident, the victim has back pain and fears over the threat from the suspect," Anbalagan said, as quoted by The Star.

Anbalagan said that the police have since identified the suspect. However, they have yet to arrest the man as they are still hunting him down.

The Star reported that the case is being investigated under Section 506/323 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation.
