SINGAPORE — Six men, aged between 22 and 34 years old, have been arrested for their suspected involvement in a case of rioting while armed with deadly weapons.
The police said in a media release on Friday (Sept 15) that they were alerted to a fight involving weapons along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 at about 3.55am on Thursday morning.
Upon their arrival, police officers spotted two injured men at the location. The pair were taken conscious to the hospital.
Preliminary investigations revealed that the men, both aged 20 and known to each other, were purportedly attacked by other men following a dispute.
Officers from the Ang Mo Kio Police Division established the identities of the other men — through follow-up investigations and images from surveillance cameras and police cameras — and have arrested them, the police said.
On Friday, a 31-year-old man was charged with rioting armed with deadly weapon and he has been remanded for further investigations.
The other five men will be charged with the same offence on Saturday.
If convicted, the offence carries a jail term of up to 10 years and caning.
Police investigations are ongoing.
