Description of incident
Assailant insisted that i intentionally tripped/kicked him when crossing a busy crosswalk. From my perspective, it was a busy junction and I wasn’t really paying attention and he cut into my direction from a blind spot. I tried to de-escalate the situation verbally, but the assailant kicked me 2-3 times while hurling vulgarities and questioning if I was “Malaysian” (which I’m not, but not that it mattered if Singapore/ Malaysian in this context).
The situation only calmed down when I managed to get on the escalator. If you were in the area at that time and saw anything, or know someone who did, please DM me. If you had video evidence, your help could be crucial in resolving this matter. Thanks in advance!
P/S: to the kind lady who helped me voiced out against him, thank you once again and thank you for validating that I did nothing wrong 🙂
