He was finally persuaded to unlock his flat after three hours, following efforts by negotiation experts who were dispatched by the police.

He was subsequently arrested for obstructing the police in the discharge of their public functions and at the time of writing, police investigations are ongoing.

What happened?

Police officers started arriving at Block 182A Woodlands Street 13 on 3 October at about 10.37am, with the SCDF also being notified of the incident at about 11.10am.

Witnesses spotted at least 4 police vehicles, an ambulance, as well as an SCDF truck at the scene; as well as about 20 police officers.

The carpark below the HDB block was cordoned off, and a video also emerged online showing the man and his wife purportedly having a heated argument inside the unit.

A neighbour who lived above the man, told SMDN that when the police arrived at the scene, the couple were still arguing.

The man then locked the door when the police arrived at their doorstep, and they urged the man not to do anything silly through the door, as the man shouted at them.

The police then sent negotiations to speak to the man after he refused to open the door, and about 3 hours later, he finally relented and opened the door at about 1.20pm.

The toddler was safe and the man’s 38-year-old wife was allegedly found with red marks on her shoulders, and the man was arrested.
