Another picture showed his daughter seated on a wheelchair and holding a towel to her mouth. She also had bandages on her forehead, knee and elbow.

In response to a Stomp query, the police said they were alerted to a case of rash act causing hurt along Pasir Ris Drive at 8.30pm.

The girl, who had just finished tuition classes at the community club and was walking on the pavement, was conscious when taken to KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital.
