Foreigners become embroiled in Ang Mo Kio kopitiam fight, leaving one man unconscious

Three men have been arrested after a fight broke out, just after midnight yesterday at a coffeeshop at Block 711 Ang Mo Kio Ave 8. The fight reportedly left one man unconscious.

The fight began soon after six foreigners – two Malaysians and four Chinese nationals – who came together to meet at the coffeeshop to celebrate that two of them were leaving Singapore to go back home soon.

The celebration, however, took a dark turn when some people in the group suggested that the group move to a different location for more drinks and the other declined. The trio that were arrested reportedly got into a fight.

The police reportedly received a call for assistance at 12.16am and arrested three men between the ages of 35 and 39 when they arrived at the scene. One of these men was unconscious and was conveyed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

A photo published by the Chinese daily shows paramedics attending to a man lying on a stretcher. A woman who bore spots of blood on her hands and clothes was reportedly seen crying next to the man on the stretcher.

Police investigations are ongoing.
