A salesman who punched a sales promoter after the two of them bumped into each other along a narrow corridor at a store was sentenced to two weeks' jail on Monday.

Lawrence Teow Peng Law, 52, admitted to an amended charge of punching Mr Cheo Boon Choon , 53, on the face twice at Harvey Norman at Millenia Walk, Raffles Boulevard, on Jan 7, 2012. He was originally charged with causing grievous hurt.

The two were both sales promoters for mattresses from their respective companies and deployed at the store.

At about 8.30pm that day, Teow was walking along a narrow passageway in the showroom when he bumped into the victim who was standing ahead of him. Teow then punched the victim twice on the face.
