The Arrest

The incident took place on the early morning of September 27th, around 4 AM, at a coffee shop along Upper Cross Street.

Two groups of men found themselves embroiled in a heated dispute that ultimately led to this startling turn of events. The police received an alert regarding persons armed with weapons at the location, prompting swift action.

One of the groups, comprised of three men, initially left the scene of the dispute but later returned armed with dangerous weapons.

It was at this point that they confronted the other group, escalating the situation to a whole new level of danger.

Swift Police Response

Police officers on the scene swiftly identified the three men responsible for the confrontation and promptly arrested them on the very same day.

Legal Consequences

The gravity of the situation became evident when the three men were brought before the court on 29 September. They were charged with possession of scheduled weapons under the Corrosive and Explosive Substances and Offensive Weapons Act 1958, a crime that carries severe penalties.

The Corrosive and Explosive Substances and Offensive Weapons Act 1958 is a critical piece of legislation in Singapore.

It exists to curb the possession and use of dangerous weapons, ensuring the safety and security of the public. The penalties for violating this act are not to be taken lightly.

Individuals found guilty of possessing scheduled weapons under this act can face a jail term of up to five years and a minimum of six strokes of the cane. This serves as a stern warning to anyone considering illegal possession of weapons in Singapore.
