Madam Toh Siew Hong.

SINGAPORE - She was caught allegedly raining blows on her 65-year-old neighbour in a video that went viral over the weekend.

When police were alerted and tried to detain her, it is believed that she shouted vulgarities at a female staff sergeant and also tried to kick another female corporal.

On Monday, Casey Sabrina Ng, also known as Asha, 41, was charged in court for voluntarily causing hurt to the corporal and verbally abusing the staff sergeant on Saturday.

Ng has been remanded for psychiatric evaluation at the Institute of Mental Health.

She is scheduled to appear again in court on Oct 14.

For verbally abusing the officer, she could be fined up to $5,000.

For kicking the corporal, she could be jailed up to seven years, caned and/or fined.

The alleged attack was recorded through a security camera installed two weeks ago by the relatives of the victim, Madam Toh Siew Hong, at her Chai Chee Road flat.

Ng has not been charged for the alleged assault as police are still investigating.
