The Police will be charging a 34-year-old man for his suspected involvement in a case of public nuisance.
On 19 March 2023 at about 6.05 am, the Police received a call for assistance, informing of a couple that was arguing along Selegie Road. Preliminary investigations revealed that while the couple were having a dispute along the road, their actions attracted the attention of a passerby, who recorded the incident with her mobile phone.

The man had also purportedly used criminal force and had voluntarily caused hurt to a woman known to him on 2 July 2022 in a hotel along Bayfront Avenue. The man will be charged in court with public nuisance on 25 March 2023. The offence of public nuisance under Section 290 of the Penal Code 1871 carries a fine of up to $2,000.

The man is also being charged with using criminal force under Section 352 of the Penal Code 1871 and voluntarily causing hurt under Section 323 of the Penal Code 1871.
