SINGAPORE — A woman and a man who were allegedly involved in a road rage incident at the Tuas Second Link have been released on bail following their arrest by Malaysian police.
The duo have returned to Singapore and have not been charged, said Iskandar Puteri district police chief Rahmat Ariffin, according to a report by The Straits Times on Wednesday (20 July). He did not mention when the duo were released.
The local police previously said the 46-year-old Chinese woman and 18-year-old Singaporean man were nabbed last Thursday night at the immigration checkpoint of the Sultan Abu Bakar Complex heading towards Johor, without mentioning the woman's nationality.
Both suspects had admitted to being involved in the incident, according to Iskandar Puteri Assistant Commander Rahmat Ariffin.
In an earlier statement, Rahmat said police had received statements from the Singaporean victim of the incident. The incident allegedly occurred when the victim's vehicle collided with a car driven by one of the suspects, he added.
The incident, which was caught in several viral videos, happened after a person, who was driving a Toyota Alphard, was reported to have changed lanes and collided with a Kia sedan.
A woman came out of her Kia and was seen trying to stop the Toyota from moving forward by leaning against the vehicle and trying to push it backward. She then pulled out the number plate of the Toyota and smashed it on the windscreen of the vehicle.
A short while later, a man can be seen coming out of the Kia and rushing towards the woman and gesturing wildly in the direction of the Toyota.
In another video of the incident, the woman was caught on a dashcam – supposedly from the Toyota – staring in front of the vehicle amid sustained honking. She was seen gesturing to several cars in an adjacent lane to move forward and a person in the Toyota can be heard shouting, “Crazy ah!”
