A 36-year-old man was arrested after allegedly attacking 2 strangers on New Year’s eve, with one of the victims ending up in hospital.
The Singapore Police Force said on Sunday that the man had punched a 44-year-old man repeatedly near a HDB block at Jurong East Avenue 1.
He also allegedly attacked another 47-year-old man with a pair of scissors on the victim’s right shoulder, as well as approached a 15-year-old teenager who fled and called the police.
He was arrested within 3 hours of the report and was charged in court earlier today for voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapon.
The police added that the three victims didn’t know the man, and that the 47-year-old victim who was allegedly attacked by the accused with a pair of scissors, was sent to the hospital.
They have also seized a pair of scissors which was purportedly used during the incident, and that investigations into the alleged incidents are ongoing.
