My girlfriend is working part time and she told me once that a guy (staff) touches her waist at work when she's unaware. Now she told me that he starts complimenting her. The first thing in my head was to get over there and tear his face or whatever to make sure I warn him. But come to think Of it, am I overreacting? Should I just wait till if he crosses the line then I'll go over and officially warn him?

Disclaimer: I am also wondering about these types of situations and this is what genuinely comes to my mind, so further discussions are most welcome.
Why did she even tell you before even trying to solve this? Is she inexperienced with such behaviour? Or just wants you to go on a fist fight? (not recommended as a 1st step, and what if he is stronger?) :/
Your concern should be around correcting his behaviour and/or preventing him from such acts in the future.
1- First she has to confront him (in a firm, direct and serious way) so he does not think she is weak and may be make future iterations uncomfortable for her.
2- If things continue more, you AND her should go directly to the management and try to work things out.
3- If management still did not solve your problem, I think this is a bad work environment and not very practical. She should leave this place.0
