SINGAPORE: A 23-year-old man suspected of knocking down a woman while riding an electric scooter has been arrested, said the police in a news release on Thursday (Mar 15).
He was arrested along Bedok North Street 3 on Wednesday, police said.
The police said they received a report last Wednesday (Mar 7) at around 6pm, saying a woman was knocked down by a man riding an e-scooter along Bedok Reservoir Road. The woman sustained head injuries as a result of the accident.
Family members had posted on Facebook over the weekend that the woman, 45-year-old Goh Lay Yong, was in the intensive care unit.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the man was unable to stop his electric scooter in time and had collided with the woman, police said.
The suspect then fled the scene after calling for an ambulance.
