Middle-aged man hurt in Joo Chiat pub brawl

Middle-aged man hurt in Joo Chiat pub brawl

A man was hurt in a brawl that allegedly started among four men over a woman at a pub in Joo Chiat Road on Friday night.

The middle-aged man was apparently hit by a beer bottle, reported Chinese evening daily, Lianhe Wanbao. It is believed that he was drunk and had picked a fight with another man at the S-Box and Pub.

When The New Paper on Sunday called a mobile number listed for the bar, a man said in Mandarin that he "was not in town" and asked that we call another number.

The second call was answered by a man who claimed that he was unaware of a fight. He insisted that he was busy and ended the call abruptly.

A reader told Wanbao that he saw four police vehicles at the scene and that the bar was brightly lit after the incident.

He said that the injured man appeared to be in a daze as he sat outside the premises while paramedics from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) attended to his wound.


Pieces of tissue paper with blood stains were scattered outside the bar when we visited yesterday morning.

SCDF told TNPS that it received a call for medical assistance at 11.32pm on Friday, and confirmed that the man sustained minor injuries but refused to be taken to the hospital.

A police spokesman confirmed that two men have been arrested in relation to the case, and police investigations are ongoing.
