Video footage of the incident, which took place at Barzan Mall in the northwestern city of Hail, shows a bearded man wearing a red headrag and a dress shouting at the woman and demanding she leave.
UK Daily Mail (h/t John H) The man is understood to be a member of Saudi’s police force – known as the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice – which is notorious for imposing the country’s strict interpretation of Islamic law. The bearded police officer shouts at her and demands she cover her exposed hands. ‘Walk away… don’t say a word… Put on some gloves,’ he demands, as he refuses to let the woman enter a shop. Saudi women are required to cover themselves from head to toe whenever they set foot outside their home.
