What would you do if you see a fight taking place right in front of your eyes?
Some will whip out their trusty mobile phones and start filming the entire incident down.
We call these people the Stompers, without which we’ll have no interesting videos to gossip over.
Yes, they’re important. But sometimes, you got to ask yourself, if everyone does the same thing, who will help the people embroiled in the incident?
Imagine an ah beng beating you up, what happens if the crowd around you just filmed the entire process instead of helping?
Yeah, you get what I mean.
But for this incident that happened at an S11 coffee shop in Yishun, there was one such individual who didn’t film but tried to break up the fight.
Here’s what happened
According to a STOMP report, this incident happened on 5 Jun 2018 at around 11 pm. An auntie reportedly approached a couple at a table and asked if she could join them and share some drinks.
To which the couple agreed.
What followed was very unexpected though. The auntie allegedly got agitated and punched the man for unknown reasons.
Then things got rough between them.
Enter the heroine of the day (or night, in this case)
A woman in a ponytail was seen trying to stop the fight. The auntie was eventually asked to leave, which she did. By the time the police arrived, the fight was long over.
Well, as for the heroine of the day?
She suffered from slight abrasions from the incident.
No matter what, you got to give her kudos for allegedly trying to stop a fight from happening…while other guys and girls stood around watching the entertainment.

This wasn’t the first time it happened in this particular coffee shop
With coffee shops being one of the favourite drinking spots for Singaporean uncles and aunties, it’s no surprise that rash acts like fights happen from time to time.
A group of four men in their sixties brawled in the coffee shop back in early March. They were fighting over a woman.
This time, a few onlookers tried to stop the fight, including a woman in a red dress. She was kicked to the ground for trying to stop the fight with a broom.
More onlookers could be heard egging them on, calling it a ‘good show’ to watch.
Yeah, that happened. Watch the video for yourself.
By the way, here’s a news about S11 that’s totally unrelated to the fights
In case you’ve missed it, S11 coffee shops is no longer under the management of S11. It’s bought over by Broadway, another coffee shop chain in Singapore.
But don’t worry too much because Broadway promised S11 fans that they will “continue to provide the public with delicious, economical and quality food and drinks”.
The coffee shops will retain the name, S11 as well. The existing stalls will likely remain as well.
And experts say prices will remain, at least in the beginning.
But we won’t know what’s going to happen in the future.
