The Police have arrested two men, aged 17 and 18, for their suspected involvement in a case of voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapon with common intention.
On 4 September 2022 at 9.11pm, the Police responded to a case of fight where two men had allegedly assaulted two other men along King George’s Avenue. After the attack, the two suspects fled the scene before Police arrival.
Through ground enquiries and with the aid of the images from Police cameras, officers from Central Police Division established the identities of the two men and arrested them within six hours of the incident.
Preliminary investigations revealed that one of the suspects had allegedly used a knife in the attack which arose from a dispute over a social media post. The knife which was purportedly used during the incident was seized.
