65 Y.O POINTS CHOPPER AT VIET BU BECAUSE SHE IGNORED HIS CALLS

A 65 year old man by the name of Abraham Lim Chew Poh was given nine weeks of imprisonment today (10 Feb) for his role in using a chopper to threaten a Fishball noodle stall assistant as well as slapping the owner of a ban mian store.

This was after he pleaded his guilt to a charge of criminal intimidation as well as voluntarily causing hurt, and a third charge was also taken into consideration by the judge in the sentencing of Lim.

Pointed chopper at stall assistant

Lim had started to go to a food court at Block 183 Toa Payoh Central in 2019 where he had a crush on a 30 year old Vietnamese lady working as a stall assistant at a fishball noodle stall in the food court.

He addressed her affectionately as ‘Ah Mei’ which loosely translates to ‘little sister’.

He would keep going to the stall to support her and also buy her food even though she had told him not to do so.

He managed to fish for her number later on and began to text and call her many times and became upset after she started to ignore his calls.

On 10 Oct 2020 around 3pm, after he had a few beers too many at the food court, he went to purchase a chopper from a nearby shop and returned to the coffeeshop at about 7pm.

The chopper was the size of a 500ml hand sanitiser bottle according to court documents.

As he returned, he realised that his leftover beer has been cleared away and he angrily removed the chopper’s packaging and went over to the fishball noodle stall while pointing the chopper at the Vietnamese lady with one hand and shouting to her angrily ‘Ah Mei this is for you’.

After doing so, he fled the scene and threw away the chopper in embarrassment and was subsequently caught and let off with a conditional warning in December 2020.

Reoffended by punching owner of Ban Mian stall

Lim went back to the same food court on 14 February 2021, Valentines Day to consume alcohol from 6pm to about 9pm.

He was preparing to go home after having three bottles of beer but went up to the ban mian stall owner instead and said that he was ‘not a man’.

The owner ignored Lim and continued to consume his meal and Lim then grew angry and slapped him on the face.

The owner’s wife called the Police and it was discovered that Lim had held a grudge against the ban mian stall owner over the chopper incident previously as he had been a witness over the chopper incident.

Had previous convictions

The prosecutor in court asked for two months of imprisonment for Lim minimally as he had not kept to the terms of his conditional warning in just a period of two months.

He was also previously convicted of armed robbery and extortion several times from 1979 to 2013.

Lim could have faced a jail term of up to three years and/or fined up to $5,000 for his offence of voluntarily causing hurt and for his offence of criminal intimidation could have faced a jail term of up to two years and/or fined.
