47-year Connie Soh, was charged with one count of using criminal force on a woman, as well as deliberately uttering words to wound racial feelings.
Soh was on bus service number 51 near Haw Par Villa MRT Station on 30 November 2021 at about 10.25pm, when she allegedly nudged the arm of an Indian woman with her elbow after shouting at her not to sit next to her.
The two women later alighted and were at a block of flats at West Coast Road about 25 minutes later, when Soh then allegedly racially insulted the woman using vulgarities after the two of them alighted from the bus.
Her case had been adjourned for a pre-trial conference on 5 October.
Recap for previous incident
Connie Soh, then 46 years old, pleaded guilty to one count of voluntarily causing hurt.
She reportedly slapped an 8-year-old girl in the face for accidentally stepping on her foot, and was fined $5,000 on 18 June 2021 for her troubles.
On 15 July 2020, at about 1.47pm, the 8-year-old girl was boarding the MRT at Choa Chu Kang station when she accidentally stepped on Soh’s left foot.
The girl apologised to Soh, but Soh was talking on her phone at the time and didn’t hear the girl.
Soh then confronted the girl’s mother, who told her that her daughter did apologise; an argument soon ensued.
When the mother and daughter arrived at their train stop and wanted to alight at Yew Tee station, Soh slapped the girl in the face to stop her from leaving.
The girl then started crying and her mother called the police.
The girl was then conveyed to NUH by her mother, where she was found with a bruised left cheek.
She was given 2 days MC.
