A young man has been caught on camera jumping on a car and stomping on the vehicle’s windshield as he climbs off the car. According to Facebook user, Belleiansa Xu, the driver of the vehicle is her 72-year-old father who works as a Grab driver.

Xu wrote online that the attack was unprovoked and that her father drove off after the unexpected incident, worried for his safety. A timestamp on the dashboard camera footage capturing the scene shows that the incident occurred this morning around 3am:

In the video, a young man who appears to be in his late teens or early twenties can be seen walking on a narrow lane with a group of people. Many of the individuals walking with the culprit move to the side of the lane but the young man runs down the centre of the lane and mounts the car.

The Grab driver can be heard sounding his horn right before the culprit stomps on his windshield.

Incensed that her father is bullied in this manner, Xu has appealed for more information on the man who jumped on her father’s car. According to SG Road Vigilante, a Facebook page that shared the footage, a police report has been made over the matter.
