A 34-year-old Indonesian woman was arrested on Monday at a HDB flat in Ang Mo Kio, Singapore, after allegedly threatening her elderly female employer with a knife.

The incident happened on June 3 when the 70-year-old employer asked her domestic worker to prepare some ingredients for a dish the employer wanted to cook, the Shin Min Daily News reported.

Aware that it was Ramadan, the elderly woman decided to cook for herself, but asked the Indonesian maid to prepare her some ingredients. After hearing the request, the maid lost her temper. picked up and pointed a 15-centimeter kitchen knife at the woman, asking if she needed it for her “preparation.”

Although the employee later calmed down and put down the knife, the employer was startled and called the police, who took the maid away for further questioning.
