The 60-year-old boss of a car garage at 1 Kaki Bukit Avenue 6 has been arrested after a fight broke out between a customer and him on 27 Sept. The Chinese daily has since identified the customer as 43-year-old Mr Liu.
Mr Liu says that the dispute arose when he sent his car to the garage for repairs after getting into an accident. Mr Liu claims that the car garage boss detained his car and demanded that Mr Liu pay him a commission of $8000.
This was because Mr Liu had recommended another driver who had gotten into an accident to visit the garage but the driver did not go through with the garage since the garage boss and the other driver could not agree on the commission.
Mr Liu claims that the car garage boss was upset with him for the deal with the other driver that fell through and indicated that this frustration sparked their dispute, which blew up into a physical altercation.
A video of the fight has been going viral on social media. In the video, the car garage boss can be seen holding the front bonnet of a Toyota car open as Mr Liu stands by him.
The garage boss suddenly lets go of the bonnet, causing it to slam on Mr Liu’s hands. The pair then get into a fight as the garage boss waves a hammer in his hand, The pair proceed to push each other around, despite the attempts of other people at the scene to intervene.
Mr Liu later told the Chinese daily that the car garage boss hit him on the head with the hammer:
“That day, I went to the garage with a friend to collect my car. The boss insisted that I return the money, even threatening to hit my car with a hammer if I did not do so.
“During our argument, he used the wooden end of the hammer to hit me on the back of my head. I called the police afterwards. Because my head was in pain from being hit, I went to Sengkang Community Hospital, where I was hospitalised and placed under observation for one day.”
