The police are looking for the e-scooter rider who knocked down an elderly woman at Blk 538 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5 on Tuesday (17 April).

According to the police, he was last seen wearing a black helmet, black long-sleeved T-shirt, denim shorts, slippers and carrying a black-and-red haversack.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Sharon Sim, the elderly woman’s daughter, said that her mother had exited the lift at Blk 538 at 5.25pm when she was hit from behind, sending victim and rider to the ground. The elderly woman grabbed the rider but he rode off.

According to Sim, her mother sustained a cut on her and bruises on her knee, elbow and ribs.

“You’ve scarred (my mother’s) face permanently and prominently. Should u choose to hide, I hope nothing similar happens to your loved ones and that u sleep well at night. By hiding, you’re also smearing the reputation of those who ride responsibly,” she added.

Anyone with information can call the Police Hotline at 1800-255-0000 or submit information online at www.police.gov.sg/iwitness. All information will be kept strictly confidential.
