According to the police, the 47-year-old manager had arrived at the salon on Staple Street in Slave Island from Modara around 12.30 am at night yesterday along with his girlfriend in a three wheeler.

When they had arrived near the salon a group of youth on the street nearby had teased the girlfriend, which had led to an argument which had escalated into a fight and the youths had assaulted the manager and fled to the Muttiah road area.

The manager, together with his girlfriend, had given chase in the same three wheeler they had arrived in and another fight had taken place on the Muttiah Road, Police said.
