Brustani was captured yelling at another person believed to be a shop owner.
Report indicates that the accused person was infuriated after he was confronted for parking in front of a shop for almost an hour.

He was prevented from attacking the shop owner by bystanders.
According to police, the victim is currently receiving psychological support.
