Woman Says Man Allegedly Grabbed Her Thigh During Singapore Grand Prix
This year’s Singapore Grand Prix (GP) attracted more than 264,000 people, who came for the fast cars and entertainment offerings.
However, four of those visitors had a negative experience when one of them had her thigh allegedly grabbed by a man during the event.
The man has been arrested for alleged outrage of modesty.
Group was walking in area that wasn’t crowded
In a TikTok video on Sunday (17 Sep), Ms Karen Beh said the unsavoury incident happened the night before.
She attended the event with her boyfriend Tyrus, her sister Kaci and her sister’s boyfriend Bryan.
She said they had just watched the qualifying rounds and were on their way to the Padang to catch Post Malone’s performance.
At about 10.30pm, the group was walking in an area that wasn’t crowded, she added, with “plenty of space” around them.
Man allegedly grabs woman’s thigh
While Ms Beh was walking behind her boyfriend, a man walking in the opposite direction allegedly grabbed her right thigh with his right arm.
She said this was an intentional act, with the man allegedly extending his arm to do it.
Ms Beh’s sister and her boyfriend Bryan were walking behind and saw what had happened.
They “verbally confronted” the man, who denied doing anything.
Another man allegedly assaults sister & boyfriend
At this point, another man in a red shirt, whom Ms Beh identified as a friend of the first man, came over.
He allegedly shoved Kaci and Bryan, who then fell to the floor.
When Tyrus tried to assist them, the second man then allegedly punched Bryan in the head.
The two then started brawling, Ms Beh said.
The altercation resulted in Bryan suffering swelling on his face.
Police arrive & talk to them
Eventually, the police arrived.
The video showed a few officers talking to the man (in a floral shirt) who allegedly touched Ms Beh’s thigh.
One officer was also seen talking to the second man and his wife in the background. The wife turned away when she saw that they were being filmed.
To add insult to injury, Ms Beh said the second man’s wife asked her, “Why would he touch you?”.
Group ended up missing Post Malone
Unfortunately, instead of grooving to Post Malone, the group spent the rest of the night outside the Padang as they had to wait for the authorities to take their statements and press charges.
Sadly, Ms Beh was busy writing her statement just as Post Malone performed his hit, “Wrapped Around Your Finger”.
She appealed to netizens who were there that night to reach out to her if they had any footage of the incident.
Man arrested for outrage of modesty during Grand Prix
The police received a call for assistance at about 10.45pm on Saturday (16 Sep), they told The Straits Times (ST).
They went down to the incident location at 2 Stamford Road — the address for Swissotel The Stamford.
There, the police arrested a 36-year-old man for alleged outrage of modesty.
Friend of arrested Grand Prix man assisting with investigations
Another man, aged 37, is assisting with the police probe for allegedly voluntarily causing hurt.
The investigations are currently ongoing.
While the group missed out on Post Malone, at least one positive thing happened to them — they met Taiwanese actor Wang Dalu.
