Two elderly women’s scuffle over an umbrella ended in one of them breaking their leg. The two women worked as cleaners in 313 Somerset. Madam Pan, a 70-year-old, suspected that Madam Wong who is 12 years older than her, stole her umbrella. When she chanced upon the 82-year-old at the Ang Mo Kio MRT on 12 Apr at about 4pm, Pan confronted Wong aggressively.

The Chinese Daily reported that the two had a loud argument after Pan accused Wong of stealing her umbrella, and that things turned ugly after Pan took the handbag she was carrying to attack the older woman. The strap of the handbag got stuck around the neck of Wong and she started choking.

Said Mdm Wong: “My throat was stuck. I couldn’t breathe. Then I lost balance and collapsed on the floor.”

The Police had to be called in to to break up the fracas. Wong refused the paramedics offer to send her to the hospital for a check-up, but she noticed that her leg has injured after she went back home.
