Man Swiftly Arrested For Voluntarily Causing Hurt By Dangerous Weapon

The Police have arrested 21-year-old man for his suspected involvement in a case of voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapon under Section 324 of the Penal Code 1871. 

On 2 August 2022 at about 8.29 pm, the Police responded to a case where a man allegedly assaulted another 20-year-old man along Serangoon Avenue 4. After the attack, the 21-year-old suspect fled the scene in a vehicle with a 21-year-old female before Police arrival. The 20-year-old man suffered multiple injuries and was conveyed conscious to the hospital.

The identity of the subject was swiftly established with the aid of images from Police cameras. Through extensive ground enquiries, officers from Ang Mo Kio Division managed to locate the abandoned vehicle at a multi-storey carpark at Northshore Drive. A search for the couple within the vicinity was mounted together with officers from the K-9 unit of the Special Operations Command. The couple was eventually spotted hiding at the back of a lorry which was parked along Punggol 17th Avenue. The 21-year-old female was found to have suffered from multiple injuries and was conveyed conscious to the hospital.

The subject was arrested on 3 August 2022 within five hours of the incident. Preliminary investigations revealed that the two victims are known to each other. The suspect is also known to the 21-year-old female and the assault allegedly arose from a past incident of dispute. Further investigations revealed that the suspect had used a pair of scissors in both attacks. Both victims are in a stable condition.

The 21-year-old man will be charged in court on 4 August 2022 for the offence of voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapon under Section 324 of the Penal Code 1871. The offence carries a punishment of imprisonment for a term of up to seven years, a fine, caning, or a combination of such punishments.

The Police will spare no effort to track down those who commit such brazen acts and will take firm action against them in accordance with the law.
