A suspect, Marcus Wee Boon How, has been arrested in connection with the violent assault that took place at Golden Mile shopping complex this week, where he was caught in camera stomping on his victim’s repeatedly as the victim lay on the ground, cowering.

The assailant fled the scene following the attack and was apprehended by the police yesterday. Police brought the 22-year-old suspect back to the scene of the crime this afternoon where he answered questions asked by investigators.

Apparently, Marcus had gone to the complex to visit a friend and was on his way to the washroom when he saw the victim – whom he did not know beforehand – staring at him.

What began as a staring match quickly turned into a physical altercation that led to the suspect hammering his victim with great force.

The 25-year-old victim was later conveyed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, where he received treatment for serious head and facial injuries. He has reportedly been discharged from the hospital at this time.

The video of the incident went viral, shortly after it was posted online:
