In a series of videos that went viral on Facebook, the victim was seen confronting the Datuk and asking him to lower his voice as to not disturb other customers at TST Hotpot located in Tropicana Avenue, PJ.
Angered, the so-called Datuk then left the premises to make a phone call. Shortly after, two men in black t-shirts entered the restaurant and asked the workers to point out who had asked the Datuk to keep his voice down.
During the argument, the ‘Datuk’ attempted to grab a pot of hot soup and pour it on the other party. Luckily, two of his friends dissuaded him. However, as his friends were leading him out of the restaurant, the ‘Datuk’ suddenly slapped the young man’s girlfriend. He tried to protect her but was beaten back.
Once the men identified the couple, they began physically assaulting them. In the video, it shows the couple being slapped multiple times by one of the men in black.

Petaling Jaya police have arrested two men — one of whom claims to be a ‘Datuk’ — after a video of them allegedly assaulting a young couple at a hotpot restaurant went viral on social media.
“The police will obtain a remand order for the two suspects to facilitate investigations. We will also conduct a background check to see if they are involved in underworld activities,” he said.
Police said the case is being investigated under Article 323 and Article 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation and voluntarily causing grievous hurt.
If convicted, the suspects could face jail time up to one and seven years for each offence respectively.
