Arguments are bound to happen amongst people, and there will come a time when unhappiness and disagreements ensue.
However, we must take care to not let emotions escalate into violence of any sort.
Unfortunately, today’s case is an example of what happens when an argument gets out of hand.
Attack at Serangoon Road
A knife attack involving two men along Serangoon Road occurred in the early hours of 8 October.
The police were alerted around 1.30am that day.
The victim was a 33-year-old man who suffered injuries on his left arm. He was apparently attacked by another man at 525 Serangoon Road.
A video from stop showed several police cars and tents around the scene of the crime at 3am.

If you’ve spotted the tents, fret not; the tents were not used for bodies so thankfully, no one died following the incident.
The victim was taken to Singapore General Hospital while he was conscious.
Before the attack, both men were apparently having a heated argument, though it is not known what it was about.
Still, nothing should’ve been bad enough to try and claim another person’s life.
Calls For Assistance
As of this writing, the assailant has not been caught.
The police have released images of him and they have been circulating on the internet since.

Not the First Incident This Week
This is, sadly, not the only incident recently where someone was attacked by an armed assailant.
In fact, it was the second incident in two consecutive days.
On 7 October, Mr Lee Jing Wen, 23, was left bloodied at a FairPrice outlet in Boon Lay Shopping Centre.
An 18-year-old teen tried to ask him to buy cigarettes for him, as he was not of age to do so as the age requirement has increased to 20 years of age.

When Mr Lee refused, he was allegedly attacked by the teen who brandished a knife at him.
Police managed to catch the attacker on the same day using CCTV footage. Mr Lee was also sent to Ng Teng Fong General Hospital shortly after.
The attacker has since been caught, charged and sent to be remanded in IMH.
