SINGAPORE - They run women's clothing stores next to each other and their relationship is tense as they sell similar products.
The two women, both from China, often argue, said other shop owners in Chinatown Complex.
Things boiled over again around 2.30pm last Friday, but this time it led to violence at their premises on the first storey.
Their fight, which also involved two men, was caught on video by a relative of the shop owner.
On one side was a woman in blue and her husband in green. They declined to be named when approached.
On the other was Ms Zhang Yin, in her 40s, and her brother-in-law, Mr Jeff Tan.
First, the woman in blue hit Mr Tan with a clothes hanger.
Things escalated from there and all four got into a scuffle with the woman in blue hitting Ms Zhang with a large plastic container.
The scuffle stopped when Mr Tan called the police.
Then it suddenly resumed and this time the woman in blue attacked Ms Zhang with a mannequin.
