Singapore — Two men had an argument at a hawker centre over an unsettled debt which ended in a scissor fight.

On June 21, Ang Thiam Soon (48) confronted Tan She Kiat (62) about money that Tan allegedly owed to Ang’s uncle.

The scuffle occurred at around 8PM at Block 75, Toa Payoh Lorong 5 according to an initial report by Channel News Asia.

As Tan carried a bowl of laksa and walked toward his seat, Ang confronted him about the money.

Tan ignored Ang and tried to move away, but Ang flipped off the bowl of laksa from his hands.

Ang took out a pair of scissors from his small bag and threatened Tan repeatedly stabbing at his left ear.

Tan tried to run away towards a nearby void deck, but Ang was in close pursuit and continued to stab at his ear.

Ang left the premises and Tan was left with a lacerated ear that required 12 stitches.

Police arrested Ang who admitted to his offences.

On Thursday (Aug 29), Ang pleaded guilty to one charge of causing hurt and was sentenced to a year in jail.

He reportedly was “very close” to his uncle and got angry because “he couldn’t bear to see him duped of his money.”/TISG
