According to the reports, the police said that the 27-year-old will be charged on Wednesday (March 16) for voluntarily causing hurt to deter a public servant from his duty and for possession of an offensive weapon.
In a press statement on Tuesday (March 15), the police said they received a call at about 9.10pm on Monday evening requesting assistance.
The man was allegedly armed with a knife, and was shouting and looking for someone at Bukit Batok West Avenue 8.
When police officers responded, the man pulled out a knife from under his T-shirt and threw it at an officer, police said. The knife hit the officer’s right cheek.
The man was then arrested and the knife seized, along with five other knives after the police later raided his home. Photos of the knives that were seized showed the handles of the blades wrapped in black tape.
The police said preliminary investigations do not suggest the incident to be an act of terror. The police have zero tolerance towards such acts of violence against public servants who are carrying out their duties and will not hesitate to take action against those who blatantly disregard the law,” the police said.
Those convicted of voluntarily causing hurt to deter a public servant from his duty may be jailed for up to seven years and fined and caned. Those convicted of possession of an offensive weapon in public may be jailed for up to three years and caned.
