A 39-year-old person was arrested after she was spotted walking around in Ang Mo Kio completely in the nude on Saturday (Jul. 2).
In videos circulating online, the person could be seen walking along a sheltered walkway near Block 502 Ang Mo Kio Ave 5, according to Stomp.
She was also seen approaching some passers-by.
"If you want to video me, pay me money"
The naked individual was walking under the sheltered walkway when she suddenly stopped and approached some passers-by, who were laughing and recording the incident.
The person then covered her private parts, before walking towards the men while swaying her hips.
The naked person and the man holding the camera then had the following exchange (translated from Malay):
Man holding camera: Not wearing clothes, eh?
Naked person: You want to video me? Okay, video me.
Camera man: Give him, give him, give him.
Naked person: *unintelligible*
Camera man: What?
Naked person: If you want to video me, pay me money.
Camera man: I don't have any money.
The naked person then walked away.
According to Stomp, the naked person was also spotted walking near Block 529.
Another video showed the naked person being apprehended by police.
