A SINGAPOREAN man's trip to Johor Bahru turned nasty barely minutes after crossing the causeway, as he was threatened and beaten with a metal pole by a road bully.

The 34-year-old, known only as Mr Fan, said the altercation on Sunday afternoon left him with bruises to his waist, arm and wrist, Chinese paper Shin Min Daily News reported.

Mr Fan was travelling to JB for a shopping trip with his wife, who was three months' pregnant and his one-year-old daughter.
The manager told Shin Min that the incident started some 50 metres after he has crossed Malaysian immigration, when a silver-coloured car with a Singapore licence plate suddenly cut into his lane.

He honked in response. Following this, the car which overtook him braked suddenly, forcing him to jam on his brakes, and resulting in his daughter being thrown off her seat.

From video footage sent in by Mr Fan, Shin Min said the little girl could be heard crying in the background, and the silver-coloured car continued driving on after the abrupt stop.
Mr Fan said he then drove into an adjacent lane and signalled for the other car to pull over. But this was met with more aggression, as the other driver attempted to knock into him.

Things started to get more heated when both cars stopped at a traffic junction.

Mr Fan said he got out of the car with his family, wanting to get an apology from the other party. He was met with a middle-aged road bully wielding a metal pole, who started pushing and taunting him.

The other party soon made a move to return to his car but Mr Fan, who felt the situation was not resolved, tapped him on the back and at this point, he was attacked.

A physical fracas broke out between the two men, with the road bully's wife trying to separate the heated individuals.
A passing motorcyclist later got off his bike and tried to intervene. According to Mr Fan, the road bully told the motorcyclist that he was a Malaysian getting bullied by a Singaporean.

When the road bully tried to make another lunge at Mr Fan, he was pulled aside by the biker. At this point, Mr Fan said he did not want to obstruct traffic any further, and got back into his car and drove off.

Mr Fan told Shin Min he lodged a report with the Malaysian police last nigh
