Man taunts road-users along Havelock Rd -- and earns himself a visit by the police

A 56-year-old man was stopped and questioned by police officers at around 4pm yesterday (Jun 21) after he taunted road-users in front of a bus stop along Havelock Road.

According to the conversations on Facebook, the man, who was clad in shirt and jeans, first became infuriated after missing his bus. 

In the first video, the man can be seen stepping off the kerb onto the road, before gesturing at road-users.

He first blocked a cyclist and started shaking wildly in front of him.

Thereafter, the man started laughing to himself.

At around the halfway mark of the video, he started pointing and making several weird hand signals at a driver of a green car.

As the driver drove past, the man had his fist up, as if wanting to hit the motorist.

He continued gesturing and pointing at other road-users throughout the remainder of the video.

At the end of the clip, a police car appeared near the bus stop. 

In the second video, police officers can be seen alighting the car. They walked towards the man to question him.

Before they spoke to him however, the man, who was still flustered at that point, kept insisting that he was fine.

In the final video, he can be heard telling the officers that he was very angry that his bus did not stop. He explained rather loudly that he wanted to go home and had already missed two buses. 

Thankfully, the man eventually calmed down and sat on a bench at the bus stop. At the end of the video, four police officers can be seen around him, possibly hoping to get more information about what he did earlier.

Said a police spokesperson in response to a Stomp query:

"On Jun 21 at 3.56pm, police received a call for assistance along Block 2 Jalan Kukoh.

"A 56-year-old man was arrested under the Mental Health Act."
