A man rushed headlong onto a car, threw himself at the windscreen, and then pounded the vehicle.

Terry Loo was driving along Pasir Ris Farmway 2, Singapore, when he saw a man in the middle of the road.

Wary, he stopped his vehicle. Instead of getting out of the way, the man sprinted head-on towards his car, hurling himself at the windscreen!

The incident happened at 3.39pm on Sunday and was recorded on Loo’s dashcam video. He posted the video on his Facebook page an hour later.

Loo’s son and daughter were in the car with him during the incident. They were shocked when the man, dressed in a white shirt and yellow Bermudas, proceeded to punch his car a few times and even kicked it violently.

When Loo, 47, got out of the car to stop the man, he pushed Loo. The man claimed that he was injured and wanted compensation.

“He held up three fingers, I think to ask for $300 (RM924),” Loo said.

Loo pointed to his dashcam and the man stopped asking him for money.

Shortly after, police officers arrived and detained the man for committing a rash act. Apparently, they were already on the lookout for him after receiving a call that he was causing trouble at a nearby location. The 35-year-old man was believed to be drunk.

According to Loo, his car bonnet was dented.

At least two similarly bizarre cases have been reported in Singapore in the past.

Last April, an elderly man allegedly hurled himself onto an oncoming car.

A year earlier, an old man was captured on video running to a car and jumping on the bonnet. He then removed his spectacles, rolled off the car and walked away!
