The North Jakarta Police have arrested two former Starbucks Indonesia employees for alleged sexual harassment after they were caught peering at a female customer’s cleavage through a CCTV camera.
Jakarta Police spokesperson Sr. Comr. Yusri Yunus said the two arrestees, identified only by their initials K and D, were apprehended on Thursday evening.
“The police are now interrogating them to find out their motives,” Yusri told The Jakarta Post on Friday.
He added the police had also identified the victim, since one of the suspects personally recognised her.
“The suspect has her phone number. The victim just filed a report to the police.”
The spokesperson went on to say the incident occurred on Wednesday in a Starbucks store in the neighborhood of Sunter in North Jakarta.
The incident caught public attention after a Twitter user under the handle @LisaAbet uploaded a video of the incident to the Twitter. She tweeted she was angered upon watching the incident in her friend’s Instagram Story.
