YOU'D think from his aggressive gongfu pose, with feet apart and clenched fists stylishly raised, that he was coming up against a martial arts expert.

Or at least another man.

But no, he was about to beat up a woman.

The spark that escalated what began as a lover's quarrel to a full-blown fight: A damaged Mercedes Benz side-view mirror which the woman had kicked.

Enraged by his broken mirror, the man got out of the car, towered over the petite woman and struck a threatening pose.

But the woman seemed defiant.

The man, with locks almost as long as his opponent, then challenged the woman to a fight.

With a few kicks, the svelte woman crumbled to her knees, clutching her stomach in pain.

But the 34-year-old Singaporean man did not stop. He went on to lock her arms, preventing her from retaliating.

The woman,a 25-year-old Chinese national, screamed.

That was when he gave her another flying kick, knocking her flat on her back.

The incident unfolded yesterday at about 7am along Geylang Lorong 27.

A witness took photographs of the entire episode,which lasted about 15 minutes.

Witnesses who declined to be named said the couple started quarrelling next to the man's Mercedes Benz along the two-lane road.

They are believed to be lovers.

A witness told Lianhe Wanbao that the initial squabble escalated into a scuffle after the woman screamed at the man, calling him a "crazy pervert" in Mandarin.

The woman, who works as a clerk, was crying as she picked up a durian husk lying by the roadside and flung it at the man, reported Wanbao.

The man hopped into his car to avoid being hit.

He then locked the door. The car was parked by the side of the road at that time.
