4 injured, 7 arrested in brawl outside Yishun restaurant

SINGAPORE - A fight at Block 261 Yishun Street 22 on Sunday (Jan 4) night resulted in four people getting injured and seven people arrested.

Shin Min Daily News reported that the brawl, which occurred at about 10pm, happened over a $120 restaurant bill dispute.

The owner, employees of the restaurant and a group of diners got into a fight after the diners were unwilling to pay the bill, citing that it was too expensive.

A 25-year-old eyewitness said: "They threw chairs and even used beer bottles in the fight. After that, they ran to a nearby bicycle area below another housing block about 50 metres away and continued to fight."

The fight lasted for about 10 minutes and only came to a stop after many of them were bleeding. The police and ambulance arrived shortly after.

The police said that the four who were injured were taken to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital for treatment.
