The suspect will be charged in court on Friday (16 March) for committing a rash act causing grievous hurt. Anyone convicted of this offence may be jailed up to four years, fined up to $10,000, or both.
According to media reports, 45-year-old Goh Lay Yong sustained head injuries after she was hit from behind while stepping off an overhead bridge. In a Facebook post on Sunday, her brother said that she had undergone an operation.
