A video of a Singaporean officer’s intervention between two men has gone viral after the short clip showed the officer reaching out to adjust one of the man’s face masks mid-argument.
The public altercation, which took place at Tekka Centre on Sunday, involved several officers who immediately appeared to break up the fight.
In a clip posted to Facebook, one of the men was taken aside by an officer while heatedly explaining the situation — all the while, with his mask under his chin.
Suddenly, one of the officers reached out and flicked the mask onto the man’s face mid-tirade, startling him into a brief silence.
The incident greatly amused social media users who took to the comment section to praise the officer for his bravery and no-nonsense attitude.
According to Singapore media, the altercation was quickly resolved and no further assistance was required.
