A recent incident involving four teenagers, aged between 14 and 15, at the Civil Service Club (CSC) chalet along Leuchars Road, gained widespread attention after a video of their altercation went viral over the weekend.
A group of about 4 girls had ganged up on another girl and mercilessly beat her up as a huge crowd of guys surrounded them and filmed the whole thing, even conducting “post fight” interviews with the attackers.
According to TODAY, the Singapore Police Force said that they were alerted to the incident on 17 November at about 10.15pm, at the Civil Service Club (CSC) @ Changi 2 chalets.
They said that a 15-year-old female teenager suffered minor injuries in the attack but had otherwise refused to be sent to the hospital.
The police confirmed that they are currently investigating.
The Viral Video
At the onset of the video, the victim, identifiable by her black shoulder-strap top, was desperately attempting to escape her assailants, accompanied by another girl holding onto her hand. Despite their efforts to flee, the assailants, fueled by aggression, pursued the victim. A group of onlookers, predominantly males with mobile phones in hand, followed, documenting the unfolding chaos.
In the subsequent frames, the victim found herself surrounded by her attackers and a sizable crowd of onlookers. A feeling of helplessness permeated the scene as a heated exchange unfolded, with the crowd seemingly goading the assailants on. The situation escalated rapidly as four other girls relentlessly attacked the victim, delivering forceful blows to her head and viciously pulling her hair, ultimately dragging her to the ground.
A Helpless Rescuer and Vicious Assault
Amidst the chaos, a rescuer, presumably the girl seen initially holding onto the victim’s hand, could only watch helplessly as the assailants overwhelmed the victim. The intensity of the assault, compounded by the cheers from the crowd, painted a grim picture of the victim’s ordeal. Squatting on the ground, clutching her head in evident pain, the victim became the focal point of the recording crowd, perpetuating the distressing incident.
Different POV: Unraveling the Initial Attack
The video transitions to a different point of view, offering insight into the moments leading up to the assault. One of the assailants, dressed in white, screamed vulgarities at the victim while a male voice off-camera encouraged the attack. The assailant, wearing white, joined in, displaying a disturbingly gleeful demeanor. The victim, visibly distraught, sought support from onlookers as she cried, only to have her hair seized by the assailants, pulling her to the ground and subjecting her to a barrage of forceful blows.
Escalation Beside a Fence: Confrontation Continues
The aggression reached a new level as the confrontation shifted to another location beside a fence. The crowd gathered, capturing the escalating violence on their mobile phones. Some even climbed on the fence for a better view. The assailants cornered the victim, back against the wall, facing four aggressors and a group of onlookers documenting the assault.
This time, a different assailant in a white top with a light-brown ponytail threw a right hook at close range, striking the victim squarely in the face. The onslaught continued with a series of repeated punches before transitioning to slaps, leaving the victim defenseless with futile attempts to shield herself.
