Attack caught on camera: Woman accused of attacking cops

The woman filmed apparently beating up her elderly neighbour was yesterday charged with kicking a policewoman who arrived at the scene of the clash.

Casey Sabrina Ng, 41, is also accused of verbally abusing a staff sergeant following the fracas last Saturday.

Security camera footage of Ng's run-in with her 65-year-old neighbour has gone viral after the victim's relatives posted it on the Internet.

It appears to show the woman raining punches and kicks on Madam Toh Siew Hong after approaching her from behind.

The elderly victim - who was seen trying to hit back - reportedly received more than 50 blows during the 20-minute clash.

Footage of the fight was recorded after Madam Toh's relatives installed a security camera outside their flat in Chai Chee due to concerns about Ng's behaviour.

The two police officers are then believed to have arrived at the scene - with Ng allegedly kicking one and verbally abusing the other.

Madam Toh is currently under observation at Changi General Hospital with bruises near her eyes and stitches on her face and mouth.

Yesterday, Ng was ordered to be remanded at the Institute of Mental Health. Her next court date is Oct 14.

If convicted, she could be jailed for up to seven years and fined as well.

It is understood that she may face charges over Madam Toh's assault once investigations are completed.
