On 27 September 2022, the Police received a report from a woman who informed that while she was driving along Serangoon North Ave 5 on 26 September 2022, an unknown man had purportedly dashed out onto the road in front of her vehicle and appeared to fall in front of her vehicle even though there was no collision.

Through investigations, officers from Ang Mo Kio Police Division established the identity of the man. Preliminary investigations revealed that the man did not suffer any injuries from the incident, did not ask the woman for any money, and had walked off after the incident.

Police are investigating the man for rash act. If convicted, the offence of rash act carries an imprisonment term of up to six months, a fine of up to $2,500, or both.

The Police have zero tolerance against acts that endanger the lives or safety of others and will not hesitate to take action against those who endanger public safety.

This is not the first time something like this has happened in Singapore. Back in 2016, Police received several reports of fake accident scams. In these cases, the suspect would claim to be knocked down by the victim’s vehicle and request for compensation for his alleged injuries. The victims had paid the suspect between $26 and $50.
