SINGAPORE (The Straits Times/Asia News Network): A 22-year-old man and a 57-year-old woman were arrested for using abusive language and voluntarily causing hurt to a public servant on Monday (June 5).
In response to queries from The Straits Times, the police said they received a call for assistance at 2.19pm at Block 415 Sembawang Drive.
According to a report by Shin Min Daily News on Tuesday, the pair are a mother and her son.
When officers arrived, the duo reportedly verbally abused them and threw household items at one female officer.
Officers entered the flat and forcibly restrained the pair before arresting them, said the report.
A 30-year-old female officer suffered minor injuries, said the police, adding that the man was also arrested for a rash act.
Paramedics told the Chinese newspaper that before the police arrived, the man was screaming and throwing potted plants, knives and parts of a washing machine down from the unit.
He threw a potted plant and a knife at a paramedic, causing a minor cut to the neck, according to the Shin Min report.
The injured paramedic, who declined to be named, told Shin Min that he and his colleagues were instructed to take the man to a medical centre.
When the lift door opened at the eighth floor, he was hit by an object.
Photos of the incident show knives strewn across the ground floor of the block, and soil from broken flower pots scattered across walkways and staircases.
Police investigations are ongoing.
