So angry

Said the witness: "The durian (husk) missed the man and the angry woman ran up to the black Mercedes Benz and started kicking the driver's door repeatedly.

"He remained inside until the woman gave a hard kick and broke the car's side view mirror (on the driver's side)."

This infuriated the man, who is self-employed, according to Wanbao.

He got out of the car, challenged the woman to a fight and, before she could say anything, punched and kicked her at least five times.

Said the witness: "The woman fell to her knees, clutching her stomach in pain. But the man did not let go.

"He went up and locked her arms from behind, giving her no chance to retaliate.

"The man looked like he knew gongfu, with his stance and kicks. As he was locking her arms, he shouted for passers-by to help him call the police."

No one did.

The area was not very busy at the time.

The shops had not opened for business.

The witness added: "It was only when the woman screamed '(It's) very painful, you are hurting my arms!' that he released his grip." The man then shouted at her in Mandarin: "Don't come and look for me again. I have a wife and family."

The woman, who was reduced to tears, then yelled back hysterically: "Why were you avoiding me? You lied to me!"

Then, for a moment, it seemed as if the couple had reached a truce.

But as the man tried to leave, the woman went up to him and refused to let him go.

That was the final straw for him.

The man lifted up his right leg and gave her a flying kick. She fell backwards onto the ground, groaning in pain.

The woman scolded him: "If you want to play with women, do it outside. Don't come and play with me."

The witness said he then saw the man reaching for his mobile phone and making a call. It is believed he called the police.

A police spokesman confirmed that they received a call at about 7.15am yesterday informing them of a dispute between two parties.

They arrived at the scene shortly after.

The witness said that after the police arrived, the woman was seen trying to leave the scene.

But the police caught up with her and she was taken to Changi General Hospital by ambulance.

The New Paper understands that she suffered bruises to her body and was treated as an outpatient.

A police spokesman said the couple have been advised on their legal recourse.

The case has been classified as voluntarily causing hurt under Section 323 of the Penal Code, which is a non-seizable offence.

For such cases, the complainant has to lodge a complaint before a magistrate, who has the powers to direct further action.
