The chef said that he had loaned one of the attackers the money in a games arcade six months ago. The man had gone missing after taking the loan. The chef saw the borrower coming out of a nightclub on the day of the incident and decided to confront him with a parang. The chef said that he had only intended to intimidate the man, but the men pounced on him and attacked him viciously.

The chef is still in hospital, recovering from the attacks. Johor Baru South district police chief Asst Comm Sulaiman Salleh identified the chef as Fong Teck Keong and said that the chef was found lying by the road, with injuries to his head and body, and was taken to hospital.  Fong is on drips and needed more than 30 stitches for the wound on his head.

Police are investigating the incident as a case of voluntarily causing hurt with dangerous weapons. If convicted, the suspects may be jailed for up to three years, fined and or caned.

Fong said that he did not have money on him and had contacted his family through the hospital and hopes to return to Singapore soon.
