It was an unprovoked attack as three foreigners found themselves in the crosshairs of a rampaging group in an Orchard Towers pub on March 6.
But not all the assailants were men. Among them was a woman, Serena Sazali, 28, who was the first to be dealt with in court yesterday.
Serena and five men had attacked two of the foreigners as they were dancing at Naughty Girl Pub.
She was jailed for six months for rioting and another nine months for drug consumption. The sentences are to run consecutively.
Court documents revealed that Serena had "attempted to pick up a chair to throw at one of the victims".
She also hit a French national, Mr Eric Georges Martins, 46, on the head.
At about 6.30am, Mr Viliman Daniel Vasile, 23, a Romanian, and Mr Martins were dancing beside Serena and an accomplice.
Without any reason, another man from Serena's group kicked Mr Vasile.
As he tried to get up, he was kicked repeatedly. When Mr Martins tried to protect Mr Vasile, he was also attacked by Serena and three accomplices.
The group also attacked Mr Gregory Victor Mckean, a 34-year-old Australian who was drinking alone, without provocation. The victims were chased around the pub and bystanders who tried to stop the fight were also attacked.
A Mr Melvin called the police and said: "20-over people inside the club fighting. 30 people. No need ambulance. Use hands all."
The pub's bouncers managed to break up the assault. The victims suffered lacerations and bruises.
Yesterday, Serena told the court she was remorseful and pleaded for leniency.
She said she was the breadwinner in her family and supporting her younger sister through school.
Her alleged accomplices are yet to be dealt with.
