A video of a young man threatening to hit an older fellow passenger in an SBS Transit bus has been circulating online.
It is unclear what led to the altercation or when exactly the incident occurred. In the video, the younger man can be heard using profane language against the older passenger before telling him to learn some English.
The older man takes a step toward the younger man, at which point the younger passenger throws up his fists and threatens to hit the other man. The younger passenger grows even more aggressive at this juncture and yells vulgar words in Hokkien at his opponent, all the while kicking at a Morries fan set box.
The older man, who initially kicked at the younger one’s leg as he kicked back, appears to be unwilling to fight and looks to the bus captain, gesturing for assistance.
The bus captain stops the bus when the altercation grows more rowdy and can be seen on camera stepping in and guiding the younger man away.
At one point, the younger man gets aggravated to the point where the bus captain has to physically restrain him from punching the other man, while other passengers are caught on camera looking on in alarm:
