The police are investigating an incident where a woman was allegedly hit on her arm by a man after she told him to keep his dog on a leash in Ang Mo Kio on Monday (Sep 17).

According to Stomper Ms Lim, she was travelling on her personal mobility aid along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 8 at about 7.30pm when she came across a couple who were walking their dog without a leash at a road junction.

She advised the couple that they should keep their dog on a leash.

"The man shouted at me and asked me to report them," she said to Stomp in a phone interview.

"I walked away about 100 metres before turning around to take a video of them.

"The man dashed at me when he saw me taking a video.

"He then banged his elbow onto my right arm."

In a video she shared with Stomp, the man can be seen walking up a staircase quickly towards her.

Ms Lim subsequently made a police report.

In response to a Stomp media query, police said: "The police confirmed that a report was lodged and are looking into the matter."
