Golden Mile attack: Victim suffered severe fractures to face, might need facial reconstruction

A 22-year-old Singaporean man, who was seen attacking another guy at Golden Mile Complex in a viral video, was charged today (Oct 16) with voluntarily causing grievous hurt.

Following the incident, which occurred on Oct 11 at around 3am, Wee Boon How was arrested by the police on Oct 14 and brought back to the crime scene yesterday (Oct 15).

Wee is accused of punching and stomping on 25-year-old Mr Bong Heng Yun's face multiple times.

The two, who were not acquainted, are believed to have been involved in a "staring incident" that led to the attack outside a first-floor toilet.

Mr Bong was subsequently sent to Tan Tock Seng Hospital but has since been discharged.

Stomp understands that he suffered severe facial fractures and might need facial reconstruction.

Wee, who was granted bail of $20,000, said that he would plead guilty and is engaging counsel. He will appear in court again on Nov 13.
