|Detained Singaporean kicked elderly neighbor, stomped on her and slammed head on floor
Singaporean Casey Sabrina Ng, 41, who is suspected to have savagely attacked a 65-year-old elderly woman on Saturday morning in a Singapore Housing Development Board housing estate by repeatedly kicking, stomping, dragging and pulling the hair of the helpless victim, has been ordered to a mental facility by a court, local news reports said today.
A video of the horrifying attack posted online by the victim's family, has gone viral.
The bespectacled elderly woman ended up with a bloodied, swollen face.
Alleged attacker, Ng was also charged with hurting two police officers who responded to reports of the brutal assault.
For voluntarily causing hurt to a police officer, Ng could be jailed up to seven years and fined, local broadcaster Channel News Asia reported.
Ng is alleged to have attacked the elderly neighbor with an incense bin and a chair.
Local media reports said the housewife had been attacked over a 20 minute period and the assault was recorded on closed-circuit TV. Videos posted online show Ng approaching the elderly woman and attacking her as she arrives home with her shopping. The elderly woman immediately hits back at Ng and walks away. But the attacker follows her and grabs her before unleashing several savage blows, until the elderly woman falls to the floor. Then, the attacker stomps on her and kicks her several times. She leaves briefly and returns to continue the assault and is seen kicking the elderly woman on the head again and slamming her head on the floor.
Her daughter-in-law, Maggie Goh, contacted the Chinese evening paper, Lianhe Wanbao and shared the TV footage, the Straits Times reported.
