Egyptian Policewoman Punished Alleged Sexual Harasser with Electric Rod

An Egyptian policewoman cracked down on sexual harassment outside a Cairo cinema during the three-day Muslim holiday this weekend, arresting and shocking an alleged offender with an electric baton.

The one-minute video captured Egyptians crowding the cinema's entrance while a policewoman, wearing a long-sleeved uniform and a white hijab under her hat, dragged the young man into the building. She seized the man's shirt collar and shook him, issuing electric shocks to his abdomen. While yelling, the policewoman slapped him and forced him to sit. Toward the end, she appears to call the victim in from the crowd.
