Expat A Bit Too Tense, Tackles Chinese Woman Over Innocuous Comment

Posted: 10/27/2014 9:00 am

The suspect in the red T-shirt was arrested by patrolling police.

A Chinese-speaking foreigner in Henan was clearly having a “bad China day”. The British man overheard a conversation between two women on the streets of Zhengzhou when he flipped out.

According to the Henan Business Daily, the incident occurred while the victim was shopping for a cellphone with a friend. After walking past a foreigner wearing a pair of shorts, the woman allegedly exclaimed, “The weather is so cold, how can he be wearing shorts?” (Incidentally, the temperature that day hit a high of 27 degrees Celsius).

The man then tackled the woman, allegedly robbing her of her cellphone and RMB 3,000 in cash. The expat was later arrested by patrolling police officers.
