Chinatown employee falls over after worker from opposite store knocks into her -- and walks away

A female worker was thrown off her feet after a worker from an opposite shop knocked into her and left.

The incident happened at a restaurant in Chinatown on Nov 1, at around 11.15pm, and the entire process was captured on a closed-circuit television (CCTV).

The victim, 23, started working in Singapore as a service staffer for about five months after arriving from China. 

On the day of the incident, the victim was moving chairs back into the shop when the man, carrying a plastic bag, approached her. 

The victim took a glance at the man and continued working. 

Just as the man passed her by, he suddenly rammed into her, knocking her over. 

After he sent her flying off her feet, the man continued walking away, as if nothing had happened.  

The victim picked herself up but did not confront the man. 

She told Lianhe Wanbao that she suffered abrasions on her hands, and a colleague helped her to call the police after the incident. 

According to the victim, the man was not a stranger, and she recognised him as a worker from an opposite shop. 

After being informed of the victim's encounter, the boss of the restaurant reviewed the CCTV footage and was enraged by what she saw.

She said: "At first I thought that he was drunk. After viewing the footage again, it seemed like he did it intentionally."

The boss said that she called the police again after that.

In response to media queries, a police spokesman confirmed the incident and said the investigations are ongoing.
