At about 1pm yesterday, at a usually quiet coffee shop in Sembawang, Block 406A, a Caucasian woman and her daughter, who looked about 4 to 5 years old, walked into the coffee shop like any other patrons.
But following hot on her heels was a visibly angry Caucasian man in his 40s, whose presence caused a quarrel with the Caucasian woman, who appears to be his wife.
The argument got so heated, at one point the man started to choke his wife with one hand and was about to rain blows on her with the other when kind hearted passersby intervened.
Yet the man would not listen to reason. In their attempts to restrain him, 2 out of the 7 who came forward to help were beaten and sent to the hospital for their injuries. The Caucasian man has been arrested.
