21-year-old Man Arrested For Allegedly Attacking Two People With “Scissors” In Serangoon Avenue 4

A 21-year-old guy was detained after two persons claim he used scissors to attack them on Tuesday (Aug 2).

Both victims, a 20-year-old man and a 21-year-old woman, suffered multiple injuries and were taken to hospital.

The two victims and the suspect are known to one another, according to a statement released by the police on Wednesday.

According to ST report, the police said preliminary investigations had revealed that the two victims and the suspect are known to each other.


The police responded to the incident that happened in Serangoon Avenue 4 at around 8.30pm.

“After the attack, the suspect fled the scene in a vehicle with the woman before the police arrived”, the police said.

With the help of police cameras the suspect was identified.

Officers from Ang Mo Kio Police Division found the vehicle used in the escape in a multi-storey carpark at Northshore Drive in Punggol. Officers from the K-9 unit of the Special Operations Command mounted a search for the couple in the area.

“The couple were eventually spotted hiding at the back of a lorry parked along Punggol Seventeenth Avenue,” said the police.

The woman was discovered to have many wounds after she was reportedly attacked by the suspect with the same set of scissors during a previous dispute.

The suspect was arrested within five hours of the first attack. Both victims are in stable condition, according to the report.

The attacker will be charged in court on Thursday with voluntarily causing hurt by a dangerous weapon.

If convicted, he can be jailed for up to seven years, fined and caned.

The police said they “will spare no effort to track down those who commit such brazen acts and take firm action against them in accordance with the law”.
