A young man in Ankara suffered a beating after trying to take his picture with a woman bus passenger without asking her consent. DHA PhotoThe “selfie” frenzy has resulted in a street fight in Ankara, after a young man tried to take his picture with a woman bus passenger without asking her consent.
The woman then explained the situation to her husband, who arrived and stopped the bus before attacking the young man.
The husband, identified only as Z.D., said his wife had been alerted by two teenagers that the man, identified as G.A., was taking selfies with her in the background.
“That individual got on the bus with my wife. He first asked her to sit next to him. She refused,” Z.D. told police during his interrogation, explaining that the young man then started to take pictures.
“My wife called me and told me that somebody was harassing her on the bus. I told her to get off at the next stop, then cut the bus’s path. I made the individual get out. I first started to talk. He answered like a wise guy, so I beat him up,” he added.
According to eyewitness accounts, the husband grabbed the walking stick of an elderly man nearby to beat the young man.
Police have launched an investigation into the incident as both parties have filed separate complaints.
