According to TMZ, an unknown man approached the couple, and later became hostile towards Belafonte. "I'll get a knife and stab you", Contactmusic quoted the man as saying.
When a photographer stepped in to defend the couple, he was allegedly attacked by the man who grabbed his clothes and tried to punch him. The family rushed back inside the airport and alerted the police who made the consequent arrest.
Statements of the snappers, who witnessed the incident, were recorded by the police who further intend to question Brown and Belafonte regarding the incident.
