Man allegedly drove car over foot of condo security guard, police report filed, says union
The Union of Security Employees said the incident took place on Jun 17 at Skysuites 17, a condominium in Balestier.
SINGAPORE: A police report has been filed against a man who allegedly drove over the foot of a condominium security officer, the Union of Security Employees said on Thursday (Jul 14).
In a Facebook post on Thursday (Jul 14), the union said it was informed of a case of physical hurt that took place on Jun 17.
The incident involved security guard Kavitha Sandresekeran, who works at the Skysuites 17 condominium located at Jalan Rajah, off Balestier Road.
“She had stopped a driver at the car entry barrier to check whether he was a visitor,” the union said. “The driver honked at her multiple times, insisting that he was a resident even though his vehicle did not have the transponder registered vehicles should have.”
The man drove over her right foot while she was trying to verify his identity, and “continued his verbal abuse” after doing so.
“A police report was filed and (Kavitha) was conveyed to the hospital for a medical check-up and X-ray,” the union said. “Thankfully the injury was minimal and (she) is now fine and back at work.
“USE is determined to cast light on this incident as it is completely unacceptable for a motorist to attempt to use his vehicle to cause hurt to a female security officer.”
The union added that it has handled 21 cases of abuse this year, as compared to 9 last year. It also encouraged security officers to report cases of abuse through its mobile app or to email the union at use [at] ntuc.org.sg.
