Violent Fight At Geylang Coffee Shop, Two Men Arrested

Two men have been arrested following a violent altercation that left a trail of blood in a Geylang coffee shop on Wednesday morning.

The incident, which occurred at Lorong 17 Geylang, was reported to the police at 8:10am.

According to Chinese-language news outlet Shin Min Daily News, the fight took place before businesses in the area were open.

A worker at a nearby bak kwa store reported seeing many police officers gathered in the area at around 9am.

One of the men involved in the brawl, a 32-year-old, was taken to Tan Tock Seng Hospital for medical attention, where he was later arrested for offences that included fighting in a public place and suspected drug-related offences.

The second man, aged 37, was also arrested for affray and disturbing the peace. Blood could be seen on tables, the floor, and a sink in the coffee shop, according to Shin Min.

Police investigations into the incident are ongoing.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force and the police have yet to release any further information on the matter.

Such incidents of public fighting are not uncommon in Singapore, and individuals found guilty of fighting in public places can be fined up to $5,000 or jailed for up to a year under the Miscellaneous Offences (Public Order and Nuisance) Act. Additionally, drug-related offences carry heavy penalties in Singapore, including long prison sentences and even the death penalty in some cases.
