Police confirmed today that a report has been lodged over a violent assault caught on tape at a mosque but declined to go into detail.

After several days of inquiries were not responded to, police today confirmed they are investigating the apparent assault of a woman earlier this month by two men at the Masjid Jamiyah Ar-Rabitah in a brief message.

“The Police confirm a report was lodged and investigations are ongoing,” read the reply sent to Coconuts Singapore. Officers neither revealed when the report was lodged nor what potential crimes might be under investigation. 

The mosque has also been tight-lipped. It has declined to respond to questions about the incident after initially urging people not to share the disturbing footage filmed March 10 on its premises, citing what it said was an active police investigation. 

Two men were filmed striking a woman with a plastic chair and their fists at the mosque located at 601 Tiong Bahru Road. The clip spread quickly online and has been watched more than 100,000 times.
