Klang – Amidst the festive celebrations of Chinese New Year, a man was slashed with a parang at the concession counter of Lotus Five Star (LFS) Cinemas in Shaw Centerpoint, here last Friday.
When contacted by Cinema Online, the cinema’s manager Mr. Jeyaraj said that a fight amongst two Indonesian groups broke out around 7.30pm at the karaoke center opposite the cinema. The commotion soon made its way to the cinema’s concession counter and one man was beaten and then slashed by another man with a parang.
No other staff or customers were involved and the police soon arrived around 8.30pm.
“There were around three customers at the time of the incident, but when the fight ended, they took out their phones and started taking photos and recording.” Jeyaraj explained.
“There were some customers who continued to come to the cinema to buy tickets, and there were some who got scared and left after looking at the police-taped area which still had a lot of blood on the floor. I would say business was slightly affected yesterday due to the commotion, but now things seem to be back to normal,” he said further.
