Police have arrested three men, aged between 32 and 37, for attempted murder on Sunday night (June 21).

According to a statement by the police, a 28-year-old man made a police report at about 9.30pm on Sunday, saying that he had been assaulted by two strangers at the multi-storey carpark at Blk 747A Pasir Ris Street 71.

The victim also informed police that the two men, together with another unknown man, had fled the scene when his cries for help attracted the attention of passers-by.

In a police ambush, officers arrested the first suspect, a 37-year-old man, at Balestier Road on June 22 at about 1pm.

After further investigation, officers arrested two other suspects, both 32, at an Aloha Changi chalet on the same day at about 9.50pm.

During the arrest, items such as a meat mincer, chainsaw, kitchen knives, gas cooker, gas cylinder tank, a tool set, trolley bags, plastic sheets, cable ties, cleaver, aprons, chopping board and rubber boots were seized from the chalet.
