It is believed that the victim of the violent assault that took place at Golden Mile shopping complex on 11 Oct might need facial reconstruction after he suffered severe facial fractures even though he tried to shield his face during the attack where he was repeatedly stomped on and punched by an assailant.

The victim, 25-year-old Bong Heng Yun, was embroiled in the physical altercation after an alleged staring match. Bong and the assailant, 22-year-old Marcus Wee Boon How, were apparently not acquainted with one another prior to the incident.

Bong was conveyed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital following the assault.

Marcus fled the scene after the assault but was subsequently apprehended by the police three days later. He was charged yesterday with voluntarily causing grievous hurt.
