A short video of a 20 year-old youth who had allegedly tried to break free from police custody was uploaded by a netizen recently.
The video showed policemen chasing after a youth who had attempted to flee from police custody.
According to eye witnesses, police first apprehended the youth for causing a scene at an overhead bridge in Seng Kang, but the suspect tried to break free twice while being brought to a police car. While trying to escape, he even attacked a police officer.
He was chased down and subdued at the top of an overhead bridge by about 5 policemen. After subduing the youth, 2 policemen continued to pin down the youth while the other police officers stood around.
Sengkang MP He Ting Ru said she was dismayed that many Singaporeans are living with racism. "There is no place in our society for racism, sexism or xenophobia," she wrote.
