Facebook user Gerald Teo shared a video of an Indian woman repeatedly hitting two Chinese salesgirls over a dispute. It is unclear where or when the incident happened, but some netizens have suggested that it happened in a spectacle shop in Tiong Bahru Plaza.

Even the shopping mall’s security officers who intervened could not stop the angry woman. When the security officer asked why she was upset, the woman claimed that the salesgirl took her bracelet. But she was wearing the bracelet in her hand earlier in the video. Sometime later, she went into a booth, and when she came out the bracelet was missing.

When a passerby tried to intervene and ask her to stop hitting the salesgirls, the woman starting scolding in vulgar language.
