A 28-YEAR-OLD woman was arrested yesterday after an altercation outside a south Belfast takeaway.

Police made the arrest at Bradbury Place at about 1am after a report that a woman had tried to enter premises there.

A video of the incident, which is believed to have happened outside Apache Pizza, was later uploaded to Facebook and has been viewed more than 820,000 times by yesterday afternoon.

The video shows a woman trying to gain entry to the premises staying: "Let me in, I want a kebab."

Two men can be seen holding the door back, preventing her from gaining access.

At one point, the woman is pushed to the ground.

She is then kicked in the chest against a phone box.

A man in a red uniform then confronts the woman, telling her to: "Away over there... out of the road and don't come back and stop biting people."

The woman once again falls to the ground.

A struggle ensues between the woman and two men against the door of the shop, which then shatters, covering the three in glass.

Police said they arrested a 28-year-old woman on suspicion of two counts of assault, possession of a class-B drug and criminal damage.

She remained in custody at Musgrave Police Station yesterday afternoon.
