Man arrested for threatening wife in Serangoon flat

Neighbour says the couple were often heard quarrelling in their Serangoon flat

A man was arrested on Wednesday morning for allegedly intimidating his wife in a Serangoon flat.

Police received a call at about 11.35am requesting assistance, reported Shin Min Daily News yesterday.

The 31-year-old man was quarrelling with his Filipino spouse at Block 233A, Serangoon Avenue 4.

A neighbour, who wanted to be known as Mr Liu, told the Chinese paper the man allegedly threatened to throw one of their daughters out of the window.

Terrified, his wife reported him to the police.

Mr Liu, 30, told the paper the couple have two daughters, a two-years old and eight-month old.

He said the couple were often heard quarrelling in their flat, sometimes past midnight.

Added Mr Liu: "On the day before, I saw both of them quarrelling in front of their unit.

"After quarrelling, the wife left in a fit of anger."

UNEMPLOYED

Mr Liu said that the man previously worked as a delivery man but seemed to be unemployed now as he would frequently see the couple at home.

The wife declined to talk to Shin Min when approached on Wednesday.

She said: "This is a family matter. I do not wish to comment (on the incident)."

Yesterday, a police spokesman told The New Paper a man had been arrested for criminal intimidation.

Investigations are ongoing.
