A man in Geylang was seen bleeding profusely in a viral video that showed him stumbling as a man behind the camera hurled vulgarities at him.

Several days later, reports emerged that two other men are facing charges for voluntarily causing grievous hurt.

The victim apparently ended up in the hospital for 14 days to receive treatment.

Thankfully for the victim, who appeared to show no signs of self-defense, another man and woman came by to intervene.

They attempted to stop the man behind the camera from further assaulting the victim.

Their efforts seemed fruitful as the attacker backed away, but not without continuing to hurl insults at the victim.

How the situation eventually dissipated is unclear.

Two men charged with voluntarily causing grievous hurt

Citing a court document, 8world News reported that a 43-year-old man and an underaged man used a knuckle duster to assault the victim.

The victim sustained several injuries which reportedly landed him in hospital for 14 days:

  • Red & swollen eyes
  • Cuts on right eyebrow
  • Suspected broken jaw
  • Spinal cord injury

Both attackers were apparently charged with voluntarily causing grievous hurt, though 8world News didn’t mention what punishments they may face.

MS News wishes the victim a smooth and speedy recovery.
