The police are investigating a ruckus caused by two drunk men at Balestier Bak Kut Teh (Kian Lian) this morning at 2.37am.

The restaurant took to Facebook a few hour later to shed light about the incident and appeal for more information about the perpetrators from the public. It claimed that the men damaged furniture and equipment, causing losses of at least $5,000, and “terrorised” staff members who felt frightened and shaken due to the attack.

Representatives of the restaurant also appended a video of the incident to their post:

In the video, a man clad in a black T-shirt can be seen flinging chopsticks, throwing a red plastic chair, knocking over a bun steamer and overturning tables.

The restaurant alleged that the man had arrived with three companions and had demanded immediate attention from a staffer who informed them politely that she would return to take their orders.

The man then caused the ruckus and also allegedly threw items at staff members, along with another companion dressed in a white T-shirt.

The group fled on board a taxi shortly after.

 

A police spokesman indicated that this is a case of rash act, adding that investigations are ongoing.
