A couple who found themselves the subject of an online manhunt for their aggressive behaviour towards an elderly man in a Toa Payoh hawker centre, said they were remorseful for their actions and wanted to apologise to the victim.

“There’s no excuse for my behaviour. After watching the video, I feel disgusted with myself,” said Chow Chuin Yee, 45, on Friday (11 August), who was involved in the incident alongside his 38-year-old girlfriend Tay Puay Leng.  “We’d like to apologise, not only to Mr Ng, but to the public, to the netizens, that my behaviour has tarnished Singaporeans.”

He was speaking to reporters after he and Tay were fined $1,500 and $1,200 respectively, over the incident at Toa Payoh Lorong 8 Market and Food Centre on 21 April. A video of the incident, which went viral that month, showed Chow shoving 76-year-old Ivor Ng Ai Hua in the back, while Tay used abusive language on him.

Chow, a Malaysian, pleaded guilty to one count of using criminal force against the victim, with one count of disorderly behaviour in a public place taken into consideration. Tay pleaded guilty to one count of using abusive words on the victim.

District Judge Kan Shu Weng called Chow’s behaviour “repulsive and reprehensible” and that there was “totally no justification for his actions”. Earlier, Deputy Public Prosecutor Kumaresan Gohulabalan said that Chow chose to behave in a “thuggish fashion”
