Police investigate woman caught on video attacking elderly neighbour
Police have arrested a woman who was caught on video punching and kicking her elderly neighbour who is said to have suffered more than 50 blows during the 20-minute attack.
The woman, in her forties, is also under investigation for hurling abusive language at police officers who were called in to help.
The woman was seen approaching Madam Toh Siew Hong, 65, from the back, at the lift lobby outside their units in Chai Chee on Saturday. She hit Madam Toh who retaliated by hitting her back. She then started to attack Madam Toh, punching and kicking the housewife mostly in the face.
The shocking footage - which has since gone viral after Madam Toh's daughter-in-law posted it on her Facebook page - was recorded by the closed-circuit television installed outside the housewife's flat.
