Drinks end up in bloody fight at coffee shop

SINGAPORE - A few drinks too many, followed by an argument with blows, ended with two faces dripping with blood.

This was the scene at a coffee shop at Block 323, Bukit Batok Street 33, Monday night.

When The New Paper arrived at the scene of the incident, blood could still be seen on the pavement outside the coffee shop.

The floor of the coffee shop had been washed though.

Madam Cai, 59, a cook at one of the food stalls, said that the two men who had fought were at the coffee shop at around 9pm. They sat in a corner and were drinking.

Although she did not see the actual fight, she said that beer bottles and cups were used as weapons.

"I only saw their faces all covered with blood," she said in Mandarin.

A patron, who did not want to be named, said that when he went to the coffee shop at about 10pm, all he could see were the police cordoning the area off and the two men involved.

He said in Mandarin: "When I arrived... there was a lot of blood."

A spokesman for the Singapore Civil Defence Force said it received a call for medical assistance at 8.43pm.

"We arrived and we conveyed two male individuals to NUH (National University Hospital). Both are conscious and we handed over the case to the police," the spokesman added.
