A young woman from Nanning is being cheered online after a video went viral on Chinese social media showing her standing up to a pervert and slapping him in the face.
Surveillance footage from inside a Nanning metro station on Tuesday shows a man standing behind a woman on an escalator. As they are ascending, the guy reaches up to touch the woman’s butt.
Rather than let the guy get away with the harassment, the woman immediately wheels around and slaps him before grabbing the perv and dragging him to the police.
After the woman explained what had happened, the man was detained for further investigation.
Watch the video below:
The video has become one of the most-discussed topics on Weibo today with netizens saying that the woman had handled the situation perfectly, though perhaps she could have hit him a little harder.
While the Nanning metro has only been around for a short time, it continues to make headlines. In March, a naked man was caught on surveillance camera trying to buy a subway ticket. Unfortunately, he forgot to bring his wallet.
