Mohamed Shabiq Mohamed Anwar, aged 21, was arrested on Wednesday (3 Aug) after he allegedly attacked a man and a woman with a pair of scissors.
The victims, 20-year-old Mr Lim Rayen and 21-year-old Ms Pebbles Ramakrishna, suffered multiple injuries and were taken to the hospital while conscious.
The police have stated that both victims are in stable condition.
Reportedly, Shabiq stabbed Mr Lim at the open carpark of Block 212 Serangoon Avenue 4 with a pair of scissors at around 8:20pm on Tuesday (2 Aug).
Multiple cuts and puncture wounds were inflicted on Tuesday.
The police were alerted to the alleged case of assault at around 8:29pm.
Mr Lim was subsequently taken to the hospital, while the police mounted a search operation to look for the suspected attacker who had fled the scene with another woman.
Shabiq’s identity was quickly established with the assistance of images from police cameras.
After doing some ground enquiries, the officers from Singapore Police Force’s (SPF) Ang Mo Kio Division managed to locate the abandoned vehicle at a multi-storey car park at Northshore Drive in Punggol.
The police officers, alongside the K-9 Unit of the Special Operations Command began to comb the area for the pair.
They were eventually found hiding at the back of a lorry that was parked along Punggol 17th Avenue.
It was said that around 12:30am on Wednesday, Shabiq purportedly stabbed Ms Pebbles at the spot they were hiding in, due to a past incident of dispute.
She suffered multiple cuts from the attack.
SPF stated that Shabiq was arrested within five hours of the attack, adding that both victims were in stable condition.
Further investigations revealed that the suspect had utilised the same pair of scissors for both attacks.
It should be said that Shabiq drove quite a distance away from the first crime scene. Hiding in lorries might not be the brightest idea though, especially since the luxury scam couple fled Singapore on the back of one.

For each count of voluntarily causing hurt by a dangerous weapon, Shabiq can face a maximum jail term of seven years, fined, and caned.
He is due in court again on 11 August.
