On June 4, when off-duty Sergeant Fanny was riding on a bus, she was alerted of a suspected indecent assault case on the upper deck and immediately intercepted the male suspect. While she was waiting for police officers to arrive at the scene, the suspect suddenly struggled free and attempted to escape. When Fanny tried to stop the suspect, she was dragged on the floor by the suspect and unfortunately fell down from the staircase, thus sustaining extensive injuries on her head and ribs.
Yen, a university student and an Auxiliary Constable of Central District, was a passenger on the bus at the time. She swiftly provided first aid to Fanny and maintained close contact with the Regional Command and Control Centre, while ensuring the integrity of the crime scene. Despite having fled from the scene at the time, the suspect was eventually arrested three days later.
Fanny was extremely thankful for Yen’s help, so she wrote Yen a thank you letter once her condition was stabilised. Yen was immensely moved and encouraged by Fanny’s appreciation. She felt that it was a very small act on her part to administer first aid. She will learn from Fanny’s bravery and continue to put in her best effort to work shoulder to shoulder with regular officers.
