Singapore Woman Hits Parents And Hurls Abuses In Front Of Police Officers

Singaporean woman hits parents, and uses abusive language against police officers...

A Singaporean woman was recently found guilty of assaulting her own parents, and for using abusive language against police officers.

The incident happened at Block 200 Toa Payoh North, in May this year, and was first reported on Shin Min Daily News. The woman, Sng Yu Qin, had got into a heated argument with her parents at their flat.

Things soon turned physical and police was informed.

Sng apparently kicked her father in the chest before officers arrived on the scene.

She continued the assault on her parents in the presence of officers, even using obscene language at the four officers who asked her to stop.

Shockingly, as per reports, Sng went on to hit her mother’s head and back. She even kicked her in the groin.

She hurled abuses at the officers and demanded that they leave. She also tore up a police statement from one of the victims. 

Sng was recently charged with three counts of assaulting civilians, four counts of using abusive words on police officers and one count of obstructing a policeman from carrying out his duties.

The Singapore Police Force (SPF) has issued a statement about the incident.

The statement reads, "The Police take a serious view against persons who obstruct Police officers from carrying out their duties or cause them harm."

"While policing is a profession not without its risks and hazards, the Police have zero tolerance towards such acts of violence towards Police officers or public servants who are carrying out their duties a'nd will not hesitate to take action against those who blatantly disregard the law and harm Police officers.

"The offence of voluntarily causing hurt to a public servant in the discharge of his duty (under Section 332 of the Penal Code, Chapter 224) is punishable with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 7 years, or with a fine, or with caning, or with any combination of such punishments."

"The offence of using criminal force to deter a public servant from discharge of his duty (under Section 353 of the Penal Code, Chapter 224) is punishable with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 4 years, or with a fine, or with both."
