2 injured, 1 conveyed to hospital

In response to Lianhe Zaobao, the police confirmed that they were alerted to the incident at about 6.20pm on Monday (14 Mar).

2 individuals reportedly suffered injuries. One of them, a 38-year-old man, was conveyed to Singapore General Hospital (SGH) for medical treatment.

The other individual, a 49-year-old, suffered minor cuts and refused conveyance to the hospital.

According to The Straits Times (ST), the 33-year-old assailant has past records with the Institute of Mental Health (IMH). The authorities have also traced him for the consumption of controlled drugs.

In regard to the latest incident, the man allegedly claimed that he had heard voices in his head telling him to attack people, noted ST.

He will face charges for voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapon or means on Wednesday (16 Mar).

The police have also pointed out that there is no indication to suggest that the incident has any links to the one in Buangkok.

Tanjong Pagar MP Joan Pereira has taken to Facebook to acknowledge the incident.

While both incidents are undoubtedly horrifying, we hope both attackers will get the help they require.
