The story began when a violent confrontation was captured on closed-circuit television. A man and a woman walk into the frame and seem to be arguing in the middle of the shopping mall when suddenly the man reaches out and slaps the woman, before he’s restrained by mall security and onlookers. The woman in the footage complained to the police that the man was sexually harassing her.
But the local police didn’t arrest him, so she took her case to the court of public opinion, posting the video on Facebook, where it has been viewed nearly half a million times. She has also made several TV appearances. alleging the police didn’t arrest her alleged attacker because he’s well known in the area.
