Mall Romeo gets a good womanly beating

By Staff

A smiling Kuwaiti man who received a smile back from a girl at a busy shopping mall thought it was an invitation to go ahead. Once he came close to the girl, he immediately wished he would have never smiled at her.

Using all womanly weapons, including shoes, a hand bag, nails, a mobile phone and a heavy necklace, her female relative jumped on the man.

“She kept beating him and threatening all passers by not to intervene until he had a really good smack…she only stopped when the security arrived,” the Kuwait Arabic language daily Alwatan said.

“Besides the smack, the girl swore at him with the worst words one can imagine…after she let him loose, the man just ran away, apparently deciding that he should be more careful in his smiling advances next time.”
