Elderly cleaner punched by woman in foodcourt

She had told a foodcourt patron not to leave used trays on the floor.

For that, 72-year-old cleaner Lim Geok Kim got a volley of vulgarities from the woman and a punch in the face.

The incident took place at the Kopitiam outlet in Tampines Mall on Sunday afternoon and left the elderly cleaner with a cut near her left eyebrow.

More than 10 patrons rushed to split the two up and held the female patron back while Madam Lim was escorted to the office to get her wound treated.



What a shamefool act by someone that is much younger and stronger against a seniour citizen.

A bullying idiot!

The woman who punched the elderly cleaner is wrong.First of all, she brought her own food which was not bought from the foodcourt.Secondly she is very inconsiderate and selfish as the foodcourt was packed with customers whom bought their food there.Not only is she inconsiderate and selfish, she is also very violent.I hope that the relevant agencies in Singapore will severly punish her for attacking such a old ladyShe also ought to be fined, and also to compensate the elderly woman for her present and future medical expenses which could get complicated due to the attack and assault.


Finally if the violent woman is a foreigner (regardless of nationality), i hope she will be banned from coming and working in Singapore.Singapore has been plague by few if not many foreigners who have brought much sadness, pain, anger and even hatred. Singapore do not need and will not welcome foreigners who cause such troubles and pain in Singapore


I hope the AG will press for a deterrent sentence. As it is, the poor elderly woman is trying to make ends meet by working. Under Penal Code, para 323 "Whoever, except in the case provided for by section 334,  voluntarily causes hurt, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 2 years, or with fine which may extend to $5,000, or with both."  What is society coming to anyway? Old person also kena punch. Cham lah.

Must educate these kind of show-off females, throw her in jail, no bail is allowed.

Publicise her photos all over media.

This is not the only abuse which occurred around Spore , there were many more . Eg - Young man pushing old woman down a bus as she had pressed the buzzer late , causing the driver to stop further .....n so on and so forth . The crux of the story is : Why r we so uptight/stressed  about everything ? Is there a govt agency to promote the relieving of stress /fury over the mass media ?

If you do not love thy neighbour, at least you should not harm them.

What goes around, comes around .....;

Do not do unto others what you do not want done unto you!!!

Words of wisdom from ancient time worth pondering on.

What was that "younger woman" thinking when she commits that act of punching?
