MELAKA: A teenage girl has been caught on closed-circuit television camera (CCTV) urinating at a launderette in Bukit Baru, Melaka on Tuesday (Aug 6).
Footage of the incident, which has gone viral on social media, also shows the girl taking a piece of clothing belonging to another customer to cover the pool of urine.
When contacted today, the owner of the launderette, Mat Nasir Baba, 65, said he decided to upload the video on his personal Facebook account after reviewing the tape.
"On Aug 6, I went to the launderette and noticed a pool of water near the benches. After checking the CCTV footage, I found out that the girl was behind it (the mess).
"Five minutes before (she urinated), I noticed that she was pacing up and down uneasily as if something was wrong. Even if her bladder was full, she should not have done it there," he said.
Mat Nasir also questioned the girl's motive, saying there were toilets at two restaurants near his shop.
"She could have gone to either one of the restaurants if she could not hold it in. What she did was unbecoming," he said, adding that his launderette has been in operation since March.
Mat Nasir said CCTV footage showed that the girl had been loitering at his shop for the next three days after the incident.
"On the third day, I confronted her but she refused to admit it. After I said her act was caught on CCTV, she fell silent and left."
Meanwhile, netizens who viewed the video were incensed by the girl's actions.
"What's her problem? Why couldn't she find a toilet at an eatery nearby? It's bad enough that she peed in her pants," said one netizen.
