Police arrested the 36-year-old man for indecent assault, and a 37-year-old man is assisting in the investigation of bodily harm allegations.




SINGAPORE: In a dramatic turn of events at the F1 Singapore Grand Prix near Padang, a 36-year-old man was apprehended by the police following accusations of inappropriate conduct towards a woman.

Karen Beh, an attendee of the event’s second day, took to TikTok (17 Sep) to recount her Saturday night, which took a distressing turn when an unidentified man allegedly “grabbed her right thigh.”

The incident quickly escalated into a physical altercation involving both parties and their friends.

Beh is now actively seeking witnesses or any available footage to bolster her case against the accused.

Beh, accompanied by her boyfriend Tyrus, her sister Kaci, and Kaci’s boyfriend Bryan, had just concluded watching the qualifying rounds and was en route to catch Post Malone’s performance at the Padang.

Around 10.30 pm local time, while walking in a relatively uncrowded area with ample space around them, Beh was allegedly subjected to the intentional act of the man, who was walking in the opposite direction.

According to Beh, the man extended his right arm to deliberately touch her right thigh.

“He was adjacent to me, and even if he did swing his arms while walking, he would not have possibly touched me. However, he intentionally reached out his right arm and touched my right thigh. It was a firm touch,” Beh recounted.

Kaci and Bryan, who were walking behind Beh, immediately confronted the man about his actions, but he vehemently denied any wrongdoing.

A friend of the accused, sporting a red shirt, joined the dispute and physically pushed Kaci and Bryan to the ground.

The altercation escalated as the man in the red shirt engaged in a physical confrontation with Bryan, resulting in Bryan sustaining facial swelling.
