The police have said that they are investigating the domestic helper who was caught on camera pinching, pushing and shoving an elderly woman in full view of the public at Geylang Bahru. An eyewitness captured the incident on her camera and shared the video online.
In the video, the helper can be seen accompanying an elderly couple to Geylang Bahru Market & Food Centre. While the scene initially seems normal, things take a turn for the worse when the helper starts treating the elderly woman callously as she eats her food.
As the helpless old lady was chewing on her food, the helper – who appeared impatient – starts jabbing the senior citizen’s face before proceeding to pinch the elderly lady’s breasts. The cruel helper then forcefully shoved the water bottle in the old lady’s mouth as she was drinking water, causing the victim’s head to jerk backwards.
Relentless, the helper shoved the bottle forcefully at the old lady’s mouth once again as she was drinking water. After the elderly lady was done with her drink, the helper callously shoved her fingers into the old lady’s mouth – presumably to check if there was still food in her mouth.
All this while, the elderly woman’s husband stood by helplessly, unable to do anything to help his wife:

The couple’s granddaughter later came out to condemn the helper. Speaking to Stomp, the granddaughter called the helper’s actions “sick,” and said: “It sucks because I want to be [giving] like my grandmother, but seeing how she was treated like shit by a stranger, it tells me that people don’t actually treat you nice just because you are a nice person.”
Revealing that she lodged a police report against the helper on the same day that the incident occurred, the granddaughter revealed that her family has fired the helper. It was also revealed that bruises were found on her grandfather.
The police have since said that they are looking into the incident. The eyewitness who exposed the incident online told the publication: “I feel at peace knowing that the elderly woman will no longer suffer under this maid. May there be no more pain, suffering and fear for this kind grandma. I hope she gets a loving helper.”
