The video of man attacking cars & members of public went viral on social media platforms.

Police responded swiftly and arrested the man with the assistance of six members of the public.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the man had allegedly consumed some unknown pills prior to leaving his home with the sword, the police said.

The man had a brief altercation with members of the public at the lift lobby of the HDB block at which he resided. Subsequently, he jaywalked across the road, and allegedly used his weapon to hit five passing cars.

As you can see in the above video, at the traffic junction in front of Buangkok Square Mall, he allegedly swung his weapon against another man. At this point, other members of the public came forward and assisted to restrain him until the Police arrived and arrested him.

One male member of the public suffered two superficial slash wounds on his left arm and was conveyed to the hospital conscious. Another male member of the public suffered abrasions on his left knee. The Police raided the attacker’s residence and seized two packets of yellow pills.

Preliminary investigations do not suggest the incident to be an act of terror. The man is traced for multiple offences, including violence offences. He had previously been remanded in the Institute of Mental Health and diagnosed with substance use disorder.


According to the police statement, the man was last released from prison on 30 July 2020, after having served a sentence of nine months and two weeks for multiple offences, including violence offences and offences against public servants.

He will be charged in court on 16 March 2022 for the offence of voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means.
