One man confronted another for taking too long at an automated teller machine (ATM), resulting in a bloody fight and police arrests.

A video circulating online shows a man with blood on the back of his head, shirt and on the ground where he is sitting. Another man is squatting nearby in a tank top that looks torn.

The incident took place on Thursday (May 12) evening.

Shin Min Daily News reported that the man in the tank top was waiting to use a POSB ATM in Geylang when he lost his patience with the man in front of him.
