A Foodpanda delivery worker has been arrested on a suspected charge of indecent assault after he asked a customer if he could use her toilet and allegedly flashed her.
Police received a report on June 12 from a 41-year-old woman living at Sheung Tak Estate in Tseung Kwan O. She said she agreed to let the delivery worker come inside her home to use the bathroom, and that he proceeded to expose himself and request that she help him masturbate.
She screamed in shock and the man fled, HK01 reported.
After reviewing CCTV footage, officers arrested a 20-year-old food delivery worker in Tseung Kwan O at around 8 pm Thursday, police said in a statement.
He faces a suspected charge of indecent assault, an offence punishable by a maximum sentence of 10 years.
In a statement to Coconuts, Foodpanda said it suspended the worker after learning of the incident and is paying close attention to the case’s investigation. “We take this matter extremely seriously and do not tolerate harassment of any kind towards our customers, couriers, or business partners,” the company added.
