SINGAPORE - A second woman was charged in court on Thursday with assaulting a condominium manager and spitting on him.

Tang Bei, 47, a Chinese national, allegedly hit Colvin Quek Choon Kiat, 67, on his face and arms, causing bruises and abrasions over his right forehead, at Simei Green Condominium management office on April 28.

Her twin sister, Tang Lei, 47, had earlier been charged on May 15 for assaulting the condominium manager and splashing liquid from a drink can at him.

The incidents were recorded on video, posted online and went viral.

The dispute apparently arose over an application for a condominium access card.

A pre-trial conference has been scheduled for June 3.

Tang, who was represented by lawyer Wilbur Lim, was offered $10,000 bail.

If convicted of causing hurt, she faces jail of up to two years and/or a fine of up to $5,000. For assaulting or using criminal force, she may face jail of three months and/or up to $1,500.
