A 31-year-old man was arrested for outrage of modesty and rash act causing hurt after he was caught on video knocking out a bystander and running away.

The incident happened at Toa Payoh Central on Monday evening (June 19).

TikTok user Garett caught the incident on video and shared the clip with Stomp after it was taken down.

According to Garett, the rider, who was wearing a Foodpanda shirt and a Deliveroo bag, had used the 'f-word' on a woman who was reportedly blocking his way.

Her male companion then chased him down but he was stopped by an onlooker who grabbed him.

In the video, a man holding a phone to record the incident is heard asking the rider, "Why are you running if you're not wrong?"

The rider replies in Malay, "I've got work to do!"

He then calls the man holding him 'stupid, dips*** motherf***er' which aggravates the man and makes him pin the rider against a pillar.

The rider then knees the man in the face causing him to fall backwards and lie motionless on the ground for a few seconds.

The rider then takes off with others chasing after him and shouting at him, 'don't run'.

The man on the ground then tells other bystanders that he is okay and gives the thumbs-up before an ambulance is called.

In response to a Stomp query, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) told Stomp they received a call for assistance at Block 184 Toa Payoh Central at about 7.30pm.

SCDF assessed a person for minor injuries but the person declined to be sent to hospital.

The police told Stomp that they received a call for assistance at 7.25pm.

"A 31-year-old man was subsequently arrested for outrage of modesty and rash act causing hurt," a police spokesman said.

Police investigations are ongoing.
