You know what they say: do not ever try and run from the law. It will always catch up to you.
Speaking of running, never leave an unconscious baby in the hospital and run. That is just asking to get chased.
And by chased, we mean that by mobilising the police and two anti-riot vehicles.
Last Saturday (24 August 2019), police noted a suspected child abuse case at around 1.40pm.
After handing a six-month-old baby to a nurse in Singapore General Hospital, a 28-year-old man then fled.
I cannot imagine the look on the innocent nurse.
Immediate action was taken, and police intercepted the man’s car along Jalan Bukit Merah towards lower Delta Road.
The man then proceeded to flee the scene on foot. Not sure how far anyone can go with that though.
Further investigation even revealed suspected drug-related articles and equipment in the man’s car. It honestly terrifies me to think what he might have done to the child.
So yes, this is where the need for two anti-riot vehicles come in. As the phrase goes: you do the crime you do the time.
Not a Solo Job
Turns out that he was not the only one in on this little incident.
The police subsequently arrested a 28-year-old woman who was also a suspect in drug and child abuse.
Did I mention that she was also the man’s girlfriend? What they could have possibly done to the child or were attempting to do is beyond me.
The baby is thankfully being taken care at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Some good news at least.
What Can We Do?
The male suspect is still at large and police investigations are currently ongoing as of today.
Luckily, Singapore is also a rather small country. It is only a matter of time before any criminal is caught.
If you see any signs of crime or suspicious activity, please notify the police or authorities immediately. Such activities not be taken lightly.
You never know whose life can be saved or what crime can be prevented just from vigilance alone.
