Customers Left Bloody in Scuffle at Apple Store iPad Launch in Beijing


BEIJING (AP) — A Chinese man says he saw a fight between an Apple store employee and a customer amid a frenzy to buy the newly launched iPad 2.

Thirty-year-old Wang Ming says Saturday's scuffle at the Apple store in Beijing's Sanlitun district was between a "foreign" Apple staffer and a Chinese customer. Wang says he heard that the customer had cut into a line and was a scalper.

Unconfirmed Chinese news reports said three or four customers were injured. Wang says he was passing by when a bottle hit his head, causing a gash.

Photos taken in the aftermath of the scuffle showed Wang and another man with a wound on his back lying on the ground outside the shop and the store's glass front door shattered.

Apple Inc. staff could not immediately be reached for comment.
