Best known for its beach and as a superb sunset spot, Yuguang Island is one of Tainan’s most popular attractions.
A recent photo-sneaking incident, however, shocked many sunbathers. Luckily, an expat reacted quickly and restrained the man before local police arrived to apprehend him.
German martial artist Hisham Al-Haroun explained in a Facebook post that he saw a middle-aged man sneaking photos of a young woman sunbathing on his mobile phone.
Al-Haroun, who explained that the two weren’t acquainted, then demanded the man to stop. The man argued and denied he was sneaking photos.
Al-Haroun explained that he then snapped the face mask off the man’s face and requested others to photograph his appearance and call the police.
The man soon became aggressive and left Al-Haroun no choice but to tackle him to the ground using his special training.
The helpful expat said he could see that the woman was frightened, shivering, and sobbing, so he accompanied her as she awaited the police’s arrival.
The Facebook post soon attracted over a hundred comments, with social media users unanimously praising his courageous deed.
He also stressed the importance of avoiding similar incidents by questioning: “What if that happened to your wife or daughter, to your beloved ones?”
