62 year-old Yue Kim Ming was charged in court today for assaulting a 69 year-old man along Hougang Avenue 7.
He got into a dispute with the older man after beating a traffic red light along the road while riding his e-bike, which narrowly missed the older pedestrian. He stopped his bike and assaulted the pedestrian for “brushing his helmet with a plastic bag”, but was finally stopped by 2 passersby.
He fled and remained in hiding for 9 days before he turned himself in when police showed up at his front door.
The court heard that the older victim was punched in the chest, face, resulting cuts to his left eye and lips, as well as bruises in the affected areas. The daughter of the victim says her father had a heart attack as a result of the incident and has been in hospital.
Yue, who is represented by Adam Ong, will be back in court to face his charges on 12 June.
