A 33-year-old Singaporean, Sng Yu Qin, faced eight charges in court yesterday after she assaulted her own parents in front of police officers, hurled vulgarities at the officers and tore up the statement her parents had given to the officers earlier this year.

According to the Chinese daily, the police were called to a flat at Block 200 Toa Payoh North on May 11 around 6pm where Sng was found hitting her parents over a dispute.

Sng reportedly hit her mother’s head and back before kicking her groin area. She also kicked her father in the chest before officers arrived at the scene.

When the officers advised Sng to stop, she hit her mother again in front of the officers and abused the officers with obscene language before tearing up a written statement Staff Sergeant Gerald Ng Yong Sheng had recorded from one of her victims.

Sng was 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.

She was charged along with eight others, between the ages of 20 and 66, who used abusive language against or hurt police officers in separate cases. She will likely return to court again next month.

 

The Singapore Police Force said in a media statement on Tuesday:

“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 and will not hesitate to take action against those who blatantly disregard the law and harm Police officers.”
