A 90-year-old wheelchair-bound man was sent to Tan Tock Hospital after getting bitten by another man at ONE KM shopping mall yesterday evening (Jun 14).

Stomper Tan was nearby when she heard screaming.

When she turned around, she saw the elderly man screaming in pain while a man was biting the side of his face.

Stomp understands that the man is in his 20s but it is unclear why he attacked the old man.

"The man in the wheelchair was bleeding and screaming for help," said Tan.

"Thankfully the mall's security guards came to his rescue and quickly wiped the blood from his face.

"They were very fast."

Shortly after, police and paramedics arrived at the scene.

In response to Stomp's media queries, a police spokesperson said:

"On 14 Jun 2017 at 6.57pm, police were alerted to a case of voluntarily causing hurt at 11 Tanjong Katong Road.

"A 90-year-old man was conscious when conveyed to Tan Tock Seng Hospital.

"Police investigations are ongoing."
