A 39-year-old man was arrested at a coffeeshop at Block 304 Woodlands Street 31 yesterday (Jul 22) at around 6.45pm in relation to a case of outrage of modesty.

A Stomper was at the scene of the arrest and recorded a video of what happened with his mobile device.

In the video, a male police officer can first be seen talking to the suspect who was seated on a chair at the crowded coffeeshop.

At around the halfway mark of the video, the officer can be heard giving the man a warning in a calm but stern manner, asking him to comply with instructions.

He said he would have to use necessary force to conduct the arrest should the suspect choose not to oblige.

Thereafter, the man stood up slowly and stretched out his hands to be handcuffed. 

He was told to turn around and the police officer proceeded to secure his hands at the back.

The suspect however, turned as he was being restrained. An onlooker then stepped forward and held on to him.

The suspect was eventually handcuffed towards the end of the video and escorted out of the coffeeshop.

Said a police spokesman in response to a Stomp query:

"On 22 July 2017 at 6.45pm, the police received a call for assistance at 304 Woodlands Street 31.

"A 39-year-old man was arrested for outrage of modesty.

"Police investigations are ongoing."
